centro hispano & pbs wisconsin present

the 6th annual evening of dreaming

Join us for an Evening of Dreaming to "Decolonize Dinner"!

Thursday, 12/2 | 6pm | online

Centro Hispano of Dane County in collaboration with PBS Wisconsin will host The Evening of Dreaming virtually at 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 2. This free, online event will showcase the diversity of Latino cuisine and explore the cultural significance of food. And it will be filmed right here at P&P!

Now in its 6th year, the theme of this year’s Evening of Dreaming is “Decolonizing Dinner,” which encourages people to reclaim the power of their native food by returning to traditional practices. Speakers, Elena Terry and Anthony Gallarday, will discuss the importance of traditional foods to Latino cultures and why it is important to rethink our connection to agriculture. The event, hosted by Karen Menendez Coller (Centro's Executive Director) and Chef Luke Zahm (Television host of Wisconsin Foodie), will also examine how food is grown and cooked as a form of advocacy, and how re-commitment to indigenous food is a way to preserve Latino heritage and identity.
