Dear Community Members and TANA Participants,

This weekend, TANA had the opportunity to host Melanie Cervantes and Jesus Barraza, Bay Area artists/ activists of Dignidad Rebelde ( Throughout their stay at TANA, Jesus and Melanie gave an informal educational talk about their work as activists and shared their past experiences engaging community through their artistic practice. They also had the opportunity to engage in conversation with many of the TANA community youth who are currently workshop participants. In addition, both had the opportunity to work in the space and start the development of three prints that will be printed and published by TANA.

Below are some pictures of their visit to TANA. We hope you enjoy them and are able to join us for future TANA guest lectures and workshop events.

We would also like to remind you that the work of Melanie Cervantes and Jesus Barazza is currently on display in our gallery at TANA. The show will be up until June 1st. All are welcome to drop by TANA during workshop hours.

Thank you for your continued support,
