At the Heart of Oga Po’geh
In response to Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s most recent public health order limiting mass gatherings to five people, as well as recent events at the Santa Fe Plaza that demonstrate the need for reconciliation and healing, SFAI is altering our first Re-Centering Santa Fe event on October 24: At the Heart of Oga Po’geh.
This was originally intended to be a public mural painting event and will now become a series of activations that visualize the deep querencia of Santa Fe.
From now through Thanksgiving, as we reflect on what an equitable city and Midtown can be, SFAI’s 2020 Story Maps Fellows Diego Medina and Christian Gering will stage a series of private mural painting gatherings as spaces for deepening needed dialogues with our city’s youth, artists, social justice advocates, and Indigenous-led organizations about the past, present, and future of Oga Po’geh.
The completion of the mural in late November will culminate in the release of a podcast series on the theme of truth and reconciliation and next steps for our community.
Re-Centering Santa Fe is presented by the Culture Connects Midtown Project. To learn more visit cultureconnects.site.
