In July 2017, we hosted our first event to welcome one of our Oaxaca- based partners (chef Paulina Garcia of Suculenta) to New York, to showcase her food in collaboration with past residents and supporters of the project.  Over the course the following year, we will be continuing to host Oaxaca-based artists and chefs in New York to promote and celebrate their creative work, with previous residents providing a platform for collaboration and support.

THESE EVENTS ARE PRODUCED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH 99 SCOTT, AN ARTS VENUE IN BROOKLYN.

Upon arriving in New York to attend this event, guest chef Paulina Garcia (of Suculenta) was declined entrance to the U.S. with no explanation. Despite mutual frustration and infuriation, we’re excited to celebrate our partnership and collaboration with her and our other friends in Oaxaca tonight.  

From Paulina:  

After several hours of shock and denial, it hit me. This goes beyond borders. This goes beyond our presidents. This is us sharing knowledge and culture and sharing what we know and what we love to do. So it is not about me being there, it is not about a wasted opportunity. It’s about standing together side by side even if it’s not in person. If it means anything it means we need to be united and better than borders, language and political opinions...So I encourage you not to feel bad about the situation.... It is simply the reflection of what we are living today. Let’s do everything we want to do because we are humans and we are amazing.... I should not feel defeated but grateful. Grateful to be able to share and communicate with such talented people... Much love to all of you from México.... My thoughts from me and my team are with you. Love, Paulina
