AIGA Unidos, a multi-chapter collaboration, creates a space to empower and celebrate the lives, work, stories, and needs of creatives with a Latinx and Hispanic cultural heritage. Our first event series, Hispanic Heritage Talks, will feature virtual talks with Latinx and Hispanic creatives of various backgrounds and disciplines, taking place all throughout Hispanic Heritage Month!
From the United Farm Workers’ grape boycotts to the Young Lords’ marches, activism for social change has played a fundamental role in Latinx Heritage here in the US. Creative expression is a crucial part of that activism. Join us for a panel discussion on the role creative professionals play as activists. This panel was made possible by the collaboration of AIGA chapter: AIGA KC, AIGA Houston, AIGA DFW, and AIGA Connecticut.
