A conversation with Maria Rosario Jackson, Maribel Alvarez and Bernard G. Siquieros on the intentional process of community building before, during and after a festival as demonstrated by the annual heritage arts festival Tucson Meet Yourself in Tucson, Arizona. How does a festival do more than just bring together people for a moment, but foster long-term community belonging, cultural resilience and social cohesion as well?
