How often do you get to see @andrewbirdmusic, @jidsv and @osopepatrisse share the same stage? It was eye-opening to see such a diverse group of musicians and activists come together to share the same core values of bravery and truth. #Brave #emergelv #morethanafest 📸: @s.jenniferparker & Alexander Zayas/ @kabikphotogroup

Born in France to Chilean parents in political exile during Pinochet’s dictatorship, Ana Tijoux moved back to Chile as a teenager and found a home in the emerging hip-hop scene of Santiago. Rolling Stone named @Anatijoux’s performance at SXSW one of the best concerts of this year’s festival and the New York Times has called her “South America’s answer to Lauryn Hill: equally skillful at singing and rapping.” Come see her at our Protest showcase on Friday, May 31st!

#Repost @humansofny ・・・ “I go to Miami every weekend to see my cats—Woody and Zoey. They live with my mother. I take the bus to wherever I can get the cheapest flight. Sometimes that’s Detroit. Sometimes Philadelphia. This week it was New York. The travel is exhausting but it’s cheaper than getting a pet friendly apartment. It was supposed to be a temporary situation, but I’ve been making the trip for about five years now. They rely on me. They’re like my kids. And they’re getting old. I don’t know why I’m so attached. I get that way. Grey’s Anatomy has been dumb for the past twelve seasons but I still watch every week and cry. I could find the cats a new home, but how do you find the right person? Every amazing person already has eight cats. Anyway, my sister told me never to talk about my cats unless people ask. But you asked. Can we talk about my kidney instead? Last year I donated a kidney.” #caturday #humansofny 😻
Weldon Angelos is another new addition to the EMERGE lineup and we are so excited for him to share his story with us! Weldon is a former music producer who worked with legends like Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur’s recording group. In 2004, Weldon was sentenced to a mandatory 55-year prison term for $1000 worth of cannabis as a first-time offender. Weldon has become a leading activist working with a bipartisan coalition of celebrities, lawmakers, and business leaders to make our federal criminal justice system fair for everyone. #morethanafest #emergelv #protestdifferently

#Repost @ashlukadraws ・・・ I’m all for taking a seat at the table, but I’m even more interested in what it looks like to build a new table altogether. To opt out of exploitative industries and create something new and collaborative and idealistic. Playing with a sketch for a mural where we ended up going with another concept 😗 ______________________________________________________ we love this artist SO MUCH 🤗! and her message of empowerment, inclusivity and self-love is always expressed perfectly in her illustrations ✨. #protestdifferently #morethanafest #dreamcollaborators

Astrotourism—travel focused on stargazing—is emerging as a travel trend, with visitors seeking out remote locales to bask in darkness or marvel at major astronomical events. The next total solar eclipse is one year away on July 2, 2019, and the path of totality will hit Polynesia in the South Pacific before making landfall in South America with (literally) stellar views from Chile’s Elqui Valley (conveniently also the country’s pisco capital). via #TheLowdown @abp_media
