Brown vs. Brown, We All Drown
Start Date: 11/1/2017Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Date: 11/1/2017End Time: 2:00 PM

Event Description:
MEChA would like to cordially invite you to be part of our 3rd Annual Brown vs. Brown, We All Drown, a solidarity and cultural art showcase that analyzes Death within various communities. This will take place on November 1, 2017 from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM (set-up @ 10:00 AM and clean-up by 3:00 PM) at the Smith & Carlos Lawn. It came as a reaction to an altares (or altars) competition being organized on campus which we were invited to take part of. However, we felt that the competition aspect of it took away from the spirit of the day and wanted to provide an alternative space for people to display altares and celebrate with consciousness. We are hoping to fight against the commodification and commercialization of día de los muertos by embracing indigenous roots of the day.

The name comes from a mural on the Eastside which was titled Brown vs. Brown, We All Drown. This theme serves to inspire the focus towards creating unity by inviting various cultural and social justice oriented groups on and off campus to come together and learn from each other. We hope to address death in our communities in order to honor the lives that have been lost, as well as to awaken consciousness about the toll this has taken on our various communities.
