Join us on October 25th at UPROOTED: Redefining Immigration an art Auction and Show that’s reimagining the migration narrative through the power of art in partnership with INDUSTRY One and Nike LatinX Design Crew. We are grateful to Industry One and Nike Latinx Design Crew for this collaboration that will raise funds for IMPACT to continue to offer high-quality evaluations to more of our immigrant community.
As an immigrant, this upcoming showcase holds a special place in my heart because it authentically captures the journey of arriving in a new country, filled with hopes and dreams, all the while challenging stereotypes, expressed Oved Valadez, Co-Founder and Executive Creative Director at INDUSTRY One.
We are truly grateful for our exceptional partners, LatinX Design Crew and IMPACT Immigration, for helping us breathe life into this vision.
“We chose the name "UPROOTED" to challenge the notion that migration is solely a loss. We want to showcase the positive, rich and beautiful side of it through the lens of Art. All the artists featured in "UPROOTED" come from diverse backgrounds, and their work tells powerful stories of their own immigrant experiences.” – Diego Guevara, Co-Founder of LXDC and Show Organizer.
All proceeds from the exhibition contribute to pro-bono and low-bono psychological evaluations in collaboration with immigration attorneys for refugees and immigrant families.
