Common Ground on the Border
January 11-13, 2024
The Good Shepherd UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST
The United States-Mexico borderlands has always been a beautiful mix of culture, language, cuisine, economies, and people. It has also been a place of struggle, high and low temperatures, a fragile environment, and the push and pull of immigration.
The Borderlands is the perfect place to explore the arts, touch the culture, and have deeper conversations about the complicated issues that collide here.
On Friday afternoon, we will enjoy the wisdom and gifts of our artist-in-residence, Sister Lika Macias, and on Saturday afternoon we will hear from our musician-in-residence TBA.
On Saturday morning, we will have three border information lectures with stimulating national and international scholars and activists sharing their perspectives on our current border and immigration crisis.
In addition, there will be field trips to the border, into the desert, and other nearby locations on Thursday. And, of course, there will be dynamic concerts on Friday and Saturday nights.
