Republica: Writing and Art from the Free Territory

Artist: Kristina Kay Robinson
New Orleans, LA

Republica is a trans-genre arts project and publication aimed at reimagining the events and political outcomes on the North American continent—in particular, those events relevant to the trajectory of African and Indigenous descended peoples in the American Gulf South. Presented by Kristina Kay Robinson, Republica is an outgrowth of the Mixed Company Project, a multi-genre platform supporting free literary readings, salons, and exhibitions in New Orleans, Louisiana. Republica is a physical and existential sight of aesthetic freedom. It engages literature, visual, performance, and culinary art to bolster the radical imagination necessary to ensuring an equitable future for us all.
