La Mujer 2022: A Celebration of Womxn

May 14 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm

**FREE FOR ALL AGES** (Tickets are solely for updates and reminders, no purchase necessary!)
In its 11th year, this festival was originally inspired by Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, who is considered the first feminist of the Americas. In 2022, the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center will highlight the accomplishments of mujeres, of womxn, who inspire us!
La Mujer is a multidisciplinary festival that will feature a stellar lineup of musicians, poets, visual artists, and womxn business owners participating in community building, networking, education, and entertainment. The event features a Womxn of Color artisan mercado curated by Frida Friday ATX. Food trucks and parking will be accessible on-site and there will be a shuttle service from Sanchez Elementary to the MACC for ease of parking.
The festival kicks off with panel discussions on Latinx activism and leadership in the arts that can delve into conversations about Indigeneity, Personal/Professional Development, Equal Pay, Reproductive Rights, and Gender Equality. How can artists imagine a different world where these issues are addressed? Together let’s imagine the future of Women in Texas!
