De Colores Tour 2014

To donate http://bit.ly/PqRbOM

#LAtoBay Support #DIYworkshops & #folkpunkshows #decolorestour2014 #culturalwork #liberationarts 

Who: students, artists, and community organizers 

What: 2 week tour from Los Angeles to Bay Area featuring liberation arts workshops and musical performances held in parks, community centers, public spaces, etc.

When: June 1st 2014 - June 14th 

Where: Los Angeles to Bay Area 

Why: From gang injunctions and gang databases to policies like stop and frisk, young people are targeted and criminalized. We are quick to invest in suppression when instead we need to support our young people and challenge the system that creates these failed policies. Young people are using art and music as a way to challenge these antiquated ideas and are tearing down the old world and painting a new one. 

"We need to document this movement of DIY culture and most importantly learn the beauties and ways of other artists," says Jasmin Monge, a student at the Academy of Art in San Francisco who will be documenting the tour.

"I’m hoping I can learn. I want to expand myself as a person and share what I know," adds Karla Sanchez, one of the young people leading workshops on the tour.

Angel M. with Heavyindastreets.com shares “I wanted to be a part of the tour because I enjoy traveling and going places I’ve never been before. But most importantly it’s about keeping it DIY and spreading the word that there is a wide variety of music and art that is not limited to the mainstream. What better way to spread the word about this than through a tour?”

Fluff rice with a fork, never stir it with a spoon.
Vaseline is the best night time eye cream on the market.
You can buy alcohol and chips with your parents’ gas station credit cards.
If you force something, you’ll break it. That could be good or bad.
It’s important to read the care tags on your clothing and follow those instructions.
Related: don’t wash and dry j. crew wool sweaters.
Changing your car’s oil is not optional.
Whatever physical objects you acquire you will one day have to put into a box and move.
You’re allowed to disagree with negative feedback.
It’s always worth reading the instruction manual.
Nostalgia, like any drug, can be a poison or a remedy.
Pets are like human friends but better in every conceivable way.
Good doctors listen more than they talk.
You can’t fix a burned roux.
Floss.
Just because someone is an authority figure does not mean they are intelligent/competent/right.
Measure twice, cut once.
Get your nice jeans and dress pants tailored by a professional.
If you’re uncomfortable wearing it you will not look good.
You’re not required to drink alcohol while in a bar.
There are a few things that cure all ills: the beach, your favorite album on vinyl, and fresh garlic.
Kindness is not weakness.
Baking soda is not baking powder.
Taking Excedrin P.M. while still in public is not advisable.
Terrible people will succeed. Wonderful people will fail. The world is not fair.
Appropriate footwear is always key.
You can absolutely be too forgiving.
Real humor punches up, not down.
Reading the assigned chapters will actually help you learn the material.
There are no adults. Everyone is as clueless as you are.
Applying eyeliner well is a timeless art.
You can always leave. Awkward dates, suffocating jobs, hometowns that you outgrow, relationships that aren’t growing in the right direction.
You can always come home again.
But it won’t be the same.
Life is too short for bad books, boring movies, shitty people, and margarine.
Never underestimate the importance of eyebrows.

Generations of stars can be seen in this infrared portrait from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope. In this wispy star-forming region, called W5. The region spans an area of sky equivalent to four full moons and is about 6,500 light-years away in the constellation Cassiopeia. Like other massive star-forming regions, such as Orion and Carina, W5 contains large cavities that were carved out by radiation and winds from the region’s most massive stars.

“The thing is, this community has been represented in very disrespectful ways, falling most of the time into the cliche, and without that complexity and diversity that it has.”
- Diego Luna, on the representation of Latinos in Hollywood films. His Cesar Chavez biopic is the only studio release due out in 2014 about a Latino figure, as well as the only film featuring a predominantly Latino cast.
