Hello everyone! Today is the launch of our gofundme for CHIFLADAparty!! This is an event that will take place in San Antonio, TX at the end of November or the beginning of December. We want this to be the start of these sorts of events across the the U.S. We want to create communities of creative latinxs everywhere.
Along with the party, we also want to raise money for the physical zines we want to print! These zines will include our favorite posts of CHIFLADA Issues 1-5. This money will also go towards making the t-shirts, patches, and stickers we want to make for the party as well!
CHIFLADAzine is something uniquely important because it is a safe space for everyone, especially Latinxs, to showcase their artwork, poetry, prose, photography, films, etc. This CHIFLADAparty will be the beginning of creating artistic spaces for young poets, artists, musicians, writers, vendors, etc. across San Antonio. Latinx voices are typically underrepresented in the media, especially Latina voices. Through CHIFLADAparty, these Latinxs will have a space to come together and have their voices heard. We believe this is important because Latinx representation is important. If you agree, then this is why you should pledge!
The event space is approximately $500 to rent, plus $1,000 for food, decor, vendors, and music. The most costly expense will be the physical copy of CHIFLADA which will cost around $1,500 since we will print over a hundred copies and the pages will be in color. Another $1,000 will cover the The CHIFLADA T-Shirts, patches, and stickers.
If you donate from, we’ll be sure to send you a copy of the physical zine! Let us know if you donated so we can mail the rewards out to you!
