MI Voz (2020)

Online Participatory Project

In anticipation of the 2020 election, “MI Voz” is a yearlong series of cartonera workshops with Michigan’s Latinx community exploring the question “what is my political power?”. Participants will answer this question by compiling books of original and sampled materials, creatively engaging their own and others’ ideas of political power, social justice, and institutional reform.

Participants’ books will be bound with cardboard covers, alluding to the tradition of Latin American cartoneras, a book form that makes publishing and distribution more accessible. Cartoneras made for “MI Voz” will be added to this site, increasing the reach and impact of the project beyond the physical workshops.
