Dreamer Warriors brings together first, second, and third generation local immigrant and nonimmigrant artists that explore identity and constantly challenge the idea of existence outside of “expected stereotyping”. The perception of immigrants, by others and themselves, differs through social conception, cultural judgements, political predispositions, religious expectations, and the trauma that has been caused by stereotypes. All they fight for is to belong, to be respected, and be heard like everyone else.
