VIVA MAZE Civic Engagement Arts Project – Cesar Chavez Celebration

March 23 @ 3:00 pm - 11:00 pm

The importance of voting will be front and center at the upcoming Cesar Chavez Celebration in Brawley, with free interactive arts activities and theatrical sketches. The VIVA MAZE CIVIC ENGAGEMENT ARTS PROJECT, organized by Los Amigos de la Comunidad, Inc., (funded by a FAR SOUTH/BORDER NORTH grant), unites local artists (painters, actors, crafts, cosplayers, singers, etc.) in educating and encouraging the Imperial Valley community to engage in civic activities, specifically promoting “your vote is your voice.” Local award-winning filmmaker Roy Dorantes is the project’s Lead Artist/Practitioner; he brought the artists together and worked with them in creating the activities, and will oversee the interactive presentation during the Chavez Celebration event and other VIVA events countywide through August.

LADLC Executive Director Eric Reyes said, “Voting is essential to healthy communities where the voices of many are heard, not just a few. Voting is an opportunity to express our vision and demands about whom we choose to represent us and make our voice heard.”
