M.E.Ch.A. leads walk to the Sarah Spurgeon Gallery:
DACA Lounge—A Dream Sanctuary
The CWU student club M.E.Ch.A. (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán) will meet in the SURC Pit at 5PM on Thursday, February 22nd. The club will lead a walk around campus ending at the Spurgeon Gallery. M.E.Ch.A. will present a short film and have a spoken-word event where students talk about their experiences related to DACA.
 
DACA Lounge is an art installation inspired by the plight and courage of DACA students, who dare to “dream” despite their difficult and uncharted circumstances. The exhibition is cosponsored by the CWU Center for Diversity and Social Justice. 
 
A section of the exhibit is an interactive space for DREAMers and their allies, which is a collaboration between Horatio Law and CWU students. The CWU student club M.E.Ch.A. (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán) provided material, advice and feedback on the exhibition content. Students in the CWU Department of Art + Design assisted with the exhibit development and installation.
 
The darkened, lounge area of the exhibit invites gallery visitors to dream in solidarity with DACA students, encouraging quietude and calmness. Glowing, cloud-like, and inflatable lounging platforms of various sizes are available for both groups and individuals. Motion sensors control ambient sounds and LED lights, creating a space conducive to thoughtful contemplation, imagination, and meditation.
 
The DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) Lounge invites all of us to dream in solidarity, and encourages quietude and calmness that are conducive to thoughtful contemplation, imagination, and meditation.
