Connecting through cultura, textiles y traditions
Saludos! We hope your 2023 is off to a great start. Austin Vida intern Kessly Salinas, a first-gen college student and migrant farmworker scholar, has returned for the spring semester. We’re proud to uplift the work of talented aspiring Latina journalists!
We also do that via our partnership with Latinitas Magazine, which allows us to amplify articles by emerging writers.
Many of you have asked us for more stories about nuestras tradiciones, so dig into Kessly’s story on the power of Mexican textiles and traditional dresses. Also, catch up on the artists you need to watch right now, and learn about the latest community news.
Gracias to all of you who have been sending us messages on what you’d like to see in upcoming Austin Vida issues. Keep ’em coming! Just hit reply.
Nancy Flores, Austin Vida Editor & Publisher
