Raizado, The Latinx House Festival 

 

Cultivando Nuestro Futuro

We are hosting our very first festival in Aspen, Colorado from August 30th to September 1st at Aspen Meadows. We built a vision for the festival with the aim of holding it for a minimum of 10 years in order to create a clear and strong place to celebrate and discuss Latinx politics, arts, and culture.

We’re inviting a group of diverse advocates, celebrities, and community members to discuss these issues we face and how to disrupt them.

We will celebrate our Latinx community by empowering one another with power, culture, and truth.

OUR POWER

Celebrating the cultural, political, and economic power of the Latinx/e community.

OUR CULTURE

Celebrating the rich and diverse Latinx culture, including food, music, literature, and art, as well as Latinx Culture Makers.

OUR TRUTH

Celebrating Latinx Truth Tellers, as well as the accurate stories and experiences that represent Latinx/e people in the US.

WHY RAIZADO

The name means deeply rooted. We believe that this is a powerful statement because as a community we are deeply rooted in the fabric of this nation. We also aim to develop deep relationships and networks through this festival and to send a clear message about the many important ways that our community has/continues to contribute to this nation’s prosperous future, while remaining connected to our own cultural identity.

ABOUT THE LATINX HOUSE

The Latinx House is a gathering place for people who appreciate and support the Latinx community and who celebrate Latinx excellence in film and entertainment. It is also a space to discuss pressing societal issues and the content creation related to these stories. It provides engagement, activation and community building opportunities. The Latinx House is also creating pipeline projects, developing content, and engaging in advocacy to further the interests of the Latinx/e community, while building bridges, power and solidarity. The Latinx House was founded by social entrepreneur and activist Mónica Ramírez, filmmaker and activist Alexandra Martinez Kondracke, and producer and entrepreneur Olga Segura.
