SRJC Latinx Faculty and Staff Association host student talent show

Courtesy Latinx Faculty and Staff Association
The Santa Rosa Junior College Latinx Faculty and Staff Association is presenting the college’s first ever student variety talent show, the Latinx Carpa, which shows Sept. 29 at the Luther Burbank Auditorium.

Come witness or participate in showcasing the hidden talent of the Santa Rosa Junior College community at the Latinx Carpa Student Talent Show from 6-8 p.m. Sept. 29 at the Burbank Auditorium.

Presented by the SRJC Latinx Faculty and Staff Association (LFSA), the show is part of the Herencia Series, which focuses on promoting indigenous and Latinx culture at SRJC.

Carpa, or “tent” in Spanish, refers to a type of traveling theater in the early 20th century, in which groups put on family entertainment under canvas tents, similar to circuses, and included a variety of skits, comedy acts, music and dance performances and even movies.

The association urges participants to stick to the Carpe and Herencia theme, but they are free to perform as they wish. SRJC students have priority registration, but alumni, faculty, staff and the public are able to participate if space is available. Performances are limited to three to four minutes each. Visit the Latinx Carpa Student Talent Show webpage to register to be in the show or for more information. The deadline to register is 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16. For more information about performing, visit the participation guidelines webpage. The LFSA also needs volunteers to serve as ushers.

“So many of our students are incredibly talented, and we can’t wait to show our community just how amazing they are,” said Beatriz Camargo, LFSA President.

For questions about the show or volunteering, contact Beatriz at [email protected], or visit https://lfsa.santarosa.edu/latinxcarpa.

Full COVID-19 vaccination or proof of negative test within 72 hours is required to participate or attend the event.

    Please do not use the term “latinx.” It’s a very offensive term created by elite white people, and being forced onto a group that really doesn’t want the term used.

      Hi, Mateo. Thank you for reading The Oak Leaf. We used the term Latinx because that is what the students named their group.
