Lente Movil is the lens that maneuvers through life to excavate the hidden stories that form our community. This project fuses art with social activism, offering insight and open doors into new spaces throughout our city, to pave the way for impactful dialogue about themes that concern and affect us all.
Our events in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 have been grounded in the experiences of Latino people living in the Pacific Northwest. A multi-media
art experience that demonstrates the critical role that the arts can play in
advancing social justice and bringing the invisible to light.

My projects and events have been grounded in the experiences of multicultural people living in the Pacific Northwest, but the issues that these events have raised are relevant to cultural and communities in all areas of the U.S. Through discourses on art, leadership, subculture, migration, identity, diversity, and stereotype. These projects and events have demonstrated the critical role that the arts can play in advancing social justice, and bringing the invisible to light.
