Join CCA and SFAI in a discussion about the global issue of Immigration/Emigration. With Santa Fe acting as a de facto Sanctuary City, questions around immigration, migration, and cultural authenticity, purity, and diversity are particularly relevant to our community. Who immigrates/emigrates and why? How do the journeys of migrants contribute to who we are as a collective community? How do we define sanctuary in the current socio-political context? Who is impacted by Santa Fe’s role as a sanctuary?

Join us for a panel discussion that aims to unpack the complexities of immigration as relevant to our city and beyond. Moderated by Sanjit Sethi (Santa Fe Art Institute), the panelists will be Dr. Rebecca Schrieber (American Studies, UNM), Carlos Juan Deosos (Santa Fe Mountain Center), Silvia Arthur (UK-based journalist), Heidi McKinnon (Director of Curators Without Borders), and Marcela Diaz (Somos un Pueblo Unido).
