Scarlet: A Celebration of Latino Expression

Coming to The Bronx for Hispanic Heritage month

September 24th 2015

 

Scarlet: A Celebration of Latino Expression is a night honoring the art, music, and food of our culture. The purpose of this showcase is to highlight the talent that comes from Latin and Hispanic countries, bring awareness to the struggle of immigrants in America, and fundraise for our community.

A portion of all proceeds will go to POTS  “Part of the Solution,” an organization in The Bronx (located on Webster Ave and 197th) that offers dozens of services to families in need. In a year, POTS serves over 25,ooo meals – 8,000 of them to children. Over 4,000 people are helped by their showers, barbershop, and clothing closet. Over 3,000 children receive back-to-school supplies, thanksgiving turkeys, and holiday gifts. They also provide legal representation to residents in risk of eviction. Every $25 raised feeds a family of four.

 

VIP / $45 / 6:00-9:00pm - VIP guests will participate in a Q&A and an open lecture style conversation with a special guest and writer MP Frias. The discussion will touch on topics like the Latin/Hispanic experience in America, immigration, life in the Caribbean, Afro-Latinx struggle, racism, The American Dream, nationalism, etc.

Guests will enjoy two spoken word performances, a performance from the Capoeira teachers at ABADA Capoeira Bronx, and a live band performing tipico and classic bachata music.

They will also appreciate authentic Latino/Hispanic appetizers, extra time to enjoy the live music and live art, ice breakers, and a book exchange. 

General Admission / $25 / 9:30-11:30pm  - GA guests will enjoy two spoken word performances, a performance from the Capoeira teachers at ABADA Capoeira Bronx, and a live band performing tipico and classic bachata music.
