Event: Untamed: Cultivating Collaboration in Arts, Activism and Scholarship

The primary purpose of “Untamed: Cultivating Collaboration in Arts, Activism, and Scholarship,” the launch event for the first edition of bozalta, is to further the formation of a bozalta community. This event wi11187759_1595212820759061_3881114186585333023_oll facilitate in-person conversations and encounters among our collective members, contributors, and UCLA readership. The target audience for this event includes UCLA undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty.

Having emerged out of UCLA’s César E. Chávez Department of Chicana/o Studies doctoral program, bozalta is rooted in Chicana feminist thought. While bozalta directly engages with the UCLA community of students and faculty, it also works to cultivate conversations from within, beyond, and between the traditionally disjointed spheres of academia, arts, and activism. bozalta participates in this exchange by showcasing critically-engaged, collaborative, and community-focused works on an online, open-access, interactive-archive platform. Through our commitment to open-accessibility and interactivity, bozalta’s current and target audience includes local and transnational community organizers, creative and intellectual workers, and institutionally affiliated and independent scholars. Our current readership is densely situated in Los Angeles and California, but reaches across the U.S., throughout Latin America (in México, Central and South America, Puerto Rico), and even as far as Europe and Asia.
