They will be on hand at the Railyard screen printing designs they have created in collaboration with local artists (free, bring a t-shirt or bandana!).
There will also be a pop up market from local artists, Peruvian food from Cuchara Del Inca and Sabor Peruana, seed ball making with Three Sisters Collective, a pop-up artist market and music from Novalima (from Lima, Peru) and Tesuque Revolt (from Albuquerque and Los Angeles, by way of Chile).
Participating local artists: Ilana Arguello, Heidi K. Brandow, Omar Ganzo, John Paul Granillo, Israel Haros Lopez, Samia Van Hattum, Gabreela Hernandez, Jeanette Iskat, Juan Lira, Ruth Ramos, Yvonne Sandoval, Yvette Serano and David Sloan.
Live screen printing is free and paper will be provided. Bring a t-shirt, bandana, or bag and artists will help you screen print on it! There will be a special screen printing/card making area for kids too!

Started by four friends from Lima with a shared passion for traditional Afro-Peruvian music and global DJ culture, Novalima stands in the common ground bridging past and future, uniting tradition and innovation.
From their humble start, file-sharing musical ideas and producing their first album in separate countries at the dawn of the internet, Novalima is now a live musical force revered worldwide for breaking boundaries and uniting seemingly irreconcilable genres, communities, and generations. They have created an inspiring movement and revolutionized the music scene in their native Peru by bridging a longstanding divide between the mainstream and the minority Afro-Peruvian community, who have struggled against discrimination and cultural dissolution for generations.
While their sound is futuristic and cutting-edge, the roots of Novalima's music reach back hundreds of years. In a far-too familiar tale, African slaves were brought to Peru as early as the 1500s until the middle of the 19th Century, establishing an outpost of the African-Diaspora on the Pacific coast of South America. Over the years, the soul and rhythms of Africa melded with the melodies and instruments of Europe and the Andes. The result is rich musical repertoire that existed for generations on the periphery of Peruvian popular culture.
Tesuque Revolt is a hi-energy Electro-Acoustic/Dance/Latin/Surf duo born while riding waves in San Diego's Pacific Ocean. The band is characterized by a unique stage arrangement where both members stand stage front with contraptions of lights, stands and pedals. They loop guitar riffs and vocal melodies, and trigger samples in an energetic physical delivery that combines catchy songs with a masterful precision of their instruments.
Hailing from the distant lands of Chile and New Mexico, founding members Michael Garcia and Matias Pizarro shared a brief stint in San Diego, then were forced to part ways when Mike returned to his native New Mexico. The music prevailed, and the seasoned musicians continued to rehearse remotely in their studios via cloud-sharing platforms and Skype, and sometimes even sharing melodies and beats over text messages and emails. This mix of electronic and acoustic instruments spawned an innovative way of writing and performing, and their debut material has already caught the ear of listeners across New Mexico, Southern California and Tijuana, Mexico.
