Mother Tongue: a reflective conversation on language

Monday, March 28, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In the November issue of MRAC Evolve, our staff shared their thoughts on the relationship MRAC has with language. We want artists to express themselves authentically and that sometimes requires multiple languages. Yet, the majority of art and culture grant-makers require applicants to tell their stories in English. MRAC is exploring this dichotomy and ways to mend the disconnect. To continue this exploration, we are excited to present Mother Tongue: a reflective conversation on language.

Join us on March 28th from 6-7pm for a virtual panel discussion featuring Fatima Camara, Ramona Kitto Stately, Natalia Romero Arbeláez, and moderated by MRAC’s Executive Director, Kathy Mouacheupao. We will continue to discuss why language matters, and explore the interweaving web of how language affects connection, art making, and spaces.
