You may have also seen him once or twice upon the Creative Alliance stage delivering bawdy one-liners as his alter-ego, Fulla Regrets, a glamorously spinster drag queen. Check out some of his favorites available on streaming platforms!

The window of your bedroom slides open and the sounds of the city creep in. Birds chirping. Sirens wailing. A woman sings opera in the distance... badly. You stumble over to your favorite vintage thrift chair, whiskey in hand. You are alone.

As we are sure you’re well aware, COVID-19 hits vulnerable communities the hardest. Our Latinx immigrant neighbors are no exception to the rule. While many of us can fall back on social safety nets, such as unemployment and government benefits, many members of the Latinx community are not supported due to immigration status; therefore, they are more vulnerable than ever before. To make matters worse, many families’ main source of income are jobs in the service industry, which has been hit hardest by the COVID-19 public health regulations.

Meet the Artesanas of Creative Alliance and find our more about the work each artist creates. Mexico, El Salvador, and Ecuador. They honor their Latin American heritage by demonstrating, sharing, and teaching traditional crafts. Prior to the new restrictions, the Artesanas had been working closely with our CIELO (Creative Immigrants and Entrepreneurs of Latin American Origin) and Education departments to provide after-school enrichment programs in area schools. They also shared their artistic traditions by offering community workshops at festivals, libraries, and universities. Artesanas also produced bilingual programs for all ages, including how to make piñatas, alebrije masks, papel picado, sugar skulls, Day of the Dead altars, corn husk art forms, paper flowers, and much more.
