Conversations Cycle: North Texas Histories / Historias de North Texas
Our building (The Fred Rouse Center) is located in Northside Historical District, one of the Four Mexican Barrios in Fort Worth. The title of our conversation series, “Histories," is inspired by the Spanish word “historias." Unlike English, this word can include written and oral, individual and collective, fictional and non-fictional narratives (for example "las historias de mi abuela” or “my grandmother’s stories"). Histories/Historias also acknowledges the plurality of The Fred Rouse Center’s constituencies and experiences. We each have our individual story—none of our cultures is monolithic but, rather, beautifully complex and multifaceted.
Our North Texas Histories / Historias de North Texas program will present the many stories surrounding the building and inter- and intra-group relations in the region. With this and other programs, Transform 1012 and The Fred Rouse Center aims to present narratives that have been forgotten—or hidden – histories that must be remembered so that we do not repeat the past.
*The title of our conversation cycle is inspired by the Museu de Arte de São Paulo’s "Histórias" program.
Please stay tuned. Coming Soon!
