Houston Arts Alliance Presents "Remembered, Regained" Series 

As the Immigration trimester begins to take shape, Vox has numerous events coming up that will be addressing this issue. Some of these experiences will be conducted in partnership with the Houston Arts Alliance. Over the next few months over the trimester, Vox Culture will be taking on the role of Community and Cultural Collaborator for the HAA’s Remembered, Regained: The Immigrant Arts of Houston series.

The Remembered, Regained series, focuses on the rich musical, visual, and oral traditions of Houston’s diverse cultural communities and the various art forms that connect them to their homeland, contributing to the vibrancy of this city. These will be showcased through a string of events including concerts, workshops, panel discussions, lectures and an exhibition.
