About The New Mythos Tour

Gloria Anzaldua says: “By creating a new mythos – that is, a change in the way we perceive reality, the way we see ourselves, and the ways we behave – la mestiza creates a new consciousness. The work of mestiza consciousness is to break down the subject/object duality that keeps her prisoner and to show in the flesh and through the images in her work how duality is transcended. The answer to the problem between the white race and the colored, between males and females, lies in healing the split that originates in the very foundation of our lives, our culture, our languages, our thoughts. A massive uprooting of dualistic thinking in the individual and collective consciousness is the beginning of a long struggle, but one that could, in our best hopes, bring us to the end of rape, of violence, of war.”

Informed by  the legacies and experiences of our ancestors The New Mythos is an exploration of the new narrative of our time; based on the spaces between what has been and what will be, by those straddling dualities & multiplicities, daring to tell our own truths, vision our own futures and manifest our own feminist prophecies.  The New Mythos Tour took place during March and April of 2009.  Follow this link and learn more about the tour, and ways that the New Mythos Project Continues to evolve, grow and be documented. http://newmythosproject.wordpress.com
