Free | Sponsored by the Chiapas Support Committee
Initially convened by the Zapatistas in July of 2016 to celebrate and strengthen the imagination and vision of the anti-capitalist movement and build the fight “For Humanity and Against the Walls of Capitalism,” CompArte is a space for the art of communities, social justice and liberation that brings together artists, painters, sculptors, musicians, rappers, hip-hop, muralists and cultural workers to showcase the deep cultural roots of our movements.
CompArte literally means “share art,” and for us it means to listen together to each others dreams and visions of a revolution against the winters of capitalism.
CompArte III will feature an art show that will be on display at the Omni starting August 1 and run through September 23.
