Tardeada This Saturday!
A Barrio Stories in Barrio Anita project
Featuring a platica with life-long Barrio Anita resident: Sarah Garcia, heritage cooking by Julian Barceló, & youth poetry performances.
Saturday April 6, 4pm - 6pm **revised time**
Davis Elementary Community Garden
(behind Davis Elementary where Anita Ave turns east and meets Granada Ave)
Free to the Public
Continuing our relationship with Barrio Anita, Borderlands Theater invites Barrio Anita residents and the public to the first in a quarterly tardeada series of discussions with elders about the history of Barrio Anita. Our first installment features Sarah Garcia who grew up in Barrio Anita and attended Davis Elementary in the 1940s. A mural by Luis Mena of Sra. Garcia's father adorns the cafeteria wall of Davis Bilingual Elementary. To hear her father's story and many others come to the tardeada.
Davis first grade teacher and heritage cooking expert, Julian Barcelò will fire up the adobe wood burning stove an make a giant pot of Gallina Pinta, a Sonoran stew cooked outdoors, a common way of cooking in Tucson barrios back in the day.
Youth poets Mariana Rivera, Yazmin Meza, and Jissel Anahy from Pueblo High School's Liberation Lyric's program open the event. Come learn about Tucson's Mexican-American heritage. It's free, there will be food, and there will be community. What more could you ask for?
Saturday Tardeadas are sponsored by a Creative Communities Institute continuation grant, a project of ASU's Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts and the Arizona Commission on the Arts.
