On the High Line at 30th St. and 10th Ave.
Come out and help us support the relief efforts for Puerto Rico after the devastating hurricane that took place in September.
A Party Called Rosie Perez celebrates the essence of New York City and its barrios. Hailing from Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, DJs Christian Martir, Laylo, and Sucio Smash blend their collective love of Latin music with hip hop, soul, house, reggae, and afrobeat to create a non-stop dance floor experience. Imagine a Hector Lavoe track, produced by DJ Premier, and remixed by Cardi B. That is A Party Called Rosie Perez.
Casitas Wisdom will be on site at the event, creating herbal sprays that celebrate Rosie Perez's joy and activism. Casitas Wisdom is a healing arts collective that honors the legacy of New York casitas and the healing practices of people of color throughout the diaspora. They gather in the spirit of home to create spaces where community shares the knowledge carried in our bodies. This is a political act of love and survival.
This event is part of our October campaign to support relief efforts, including a special fundraiser edition of ¡Arriba! on Wednesday, October 18.
Please come, support, share, repost, and help us get the word out!

La Deliciosa Show is presented as part of Mutations, a group exhibition that explores the relationship between man and nature, looking at how the boundaries between the natural world and culture are defined, crossed, and obliterated.
Mutations is supported, in part, by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
