Warmipura means "among womxn" in Quechua, an indigenous language of the Andes. The Runasimi Outreach Committee, a student group based in New York University, is creating a dual stage/gallery space to celebrate and be immersed in art/performance made by indigenous womxn from across the Americas. It will take place on Sunday, March 10 from 1-6:30 pm in the James Room of Barnard Hall. A full schedule of events will be available soon on our Facebook page: facebook.com/QuechuaatNYU. Performances are multilingual (English/Spanish/Indigenous languages) and include spoken word, live music, dances, short stories, and songs; material arts represented include paintings, zines, books, clothing and others. This event is open to the general public and admission is free, cash is encouraged if you'd like to support our vendors.
