Aliento is presenting (IN) VISIBLE, a gallery showcase of the work produced this last year in Aliento’s Arts and Healing Workshops for DACA/undocumented youth and migrant families. This year’s theme brings migrant voices to light by transforming feelings of anxiety and invisibility into a visible celebration of our resilience and our hope.
