Tucson, You Need More Ana Tijoux: Tonight, a Community Platica at the Global Justice Center

Posted By on Thu, Oct 16, 2014 at 5:03 PM

If you were lucky enough to catch Chilean hip-hop artist and musician Ana Tijoux performing in Tucson this week, then you know how lucky you were to catch her show and understand the beauty and talent of this amazing artist. But wouldn't it be cool to spend some time with her talking about her work and community? Yes, of course it would.

Look, Tucson, I don't mean to get pushy, but if I was your guide tonight, after work, head over to Pico de Gallo for some tacos and love, and then go across the street to the center to meet Tijoux and take in her observations about the border and what is sure to be a great community conversation.

From organizers:

Ana Tijoux-rapper, mother, and activist- will be performing at the Rialto on Wednesday night, and on Thursday will be offering a community conversation about politics, feminism, and the power of music to inspire social change.

The platica will be introduced by Alisha Vazquez and facilitated by Elva De La Torre from KXCI.

Ana Tijoux- cantante de rap, madre, y activista- va a tener un concierto en el Rialto el Miércoles por la noche, y el Jueves va a ofrecer una conversación con la comunidad de Tucson sobre la politica, el feminismo, y el poder de la musica para inspirar una transformación social.

La platica será introducida por Alisha Vazquez y facilitado por Elva De La Torre de KXCI.
