Here’s a quote from one of our partners:
Through the Critical Mixed Studies conference at DePaul University in Chicago, we have worked closely in 2012 and again in 2014 to bring Mixed Roots Stories programming to the conference. In 2014, for three days and for every session we organized arts and cultural programming along with two special evening events including a featured film studies keynote speaker and an evening of short film screenings and a closing night live event performance. I’ve been so impressed by their vision, ambition and dedication to the Mixed Roots Stories mission “to celebrate and strengthen diverse Mixed communities through the power of sharing stories.” What I value most is how they are able to use the arts and story telling across a range of mediums (performance, film, workshops, visual arts etc.) to create a larger sense of community that facilitates dynamic connections, friendship, a feeling of family, of belonging but at the same time that asks us to look at difficult issues, values how we are different or “other” from one another, and that critically examines privilege and race. I also can’t speak highly enough about their organizational and social media abilities and how they successfully handle all of the things the audience doesn’t see behind the scenes. They are consummate professionals and it has been a joy and honor to work with them and I look forward to continuing our partnership for future Critical Mixed Race Studies conferences.

From the MultiasianFamilies Blog:
This conference was really, truly special because it was academic but presented in partnership with Mixed Roots Stories which brought artists and performers to present alongside scholars. This pairing of research, passion, and expression was so rich it’s hard to put in words.
