Everything We’ve Ever Lost: A Reclaiming Ceremony

Tickets available September 28.

Headlands Center for the Arts cordially invites you to Everything We’ve Ever Lost: A Reclaiming Ceremony – a special evening with Headlands Bay Area Fellow Arleene Correa Valencia.

This intimate program features live performance, food, and traditional Mexican and westernized ceremonial practices. Correa Valencia notes that many immigrant families strive to integrate into the new culture in which they live while also retaining their own identity and customs, invisible and visible simultaneously. Such families—in particular those who are undocumented—may, out of fear, be denied important moments of celebration. Drawing on Correa Valencia’s personal experience, Everything We’ve Ever Lost serves as a symbolic reclamation of those celebratory milestones, welcoming audiences to share in and bear witness to a moment of personal, and collective, love and joy.

Food and beverages will be served. Formal attire is welcomed.
