This project is made possible by a Far South/Border North grant.

Mabelle Reynoso (playwright/producer) and Johnny Bear Contreras (set and props designer) are two of about 60 individual artists and cultural practitioners working to create campaigns that raise awareness of crucial issues affecting San Diego and Imperial counties communities as part of the Far South/Border North. This activity is funded in part by the CalArts Council, a state agency, and with additional support from the Prebys Foundation.

Special thanks to Casa Familiar and The FRONT Arte y Cultura for their incredible support in making this project happen.
