Dignidad Rebelde is a creative collaborative space organized by artists Jesus Barraza and Melanie Cervantes who are based in Halchis, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Jalquin Chochenyo Ohlone, an area today known as San Leandro, CA. We believe art can be a powerful reflection of peoples’ struggles and their desire for the radical transformation of our world. Following principles from Xicanisma and Zapatismo, we create visual narratives that reflect people’s righteous resistance to all forms of domination and control in order to produce artwork we return to the hands of the people who inspire it. As Xicanx peoples we are committed to an anti-colonial, queered, feminist praxis that continually seeks to emancipate our people from the oppressions seeking to undermine us in this world.
