"Many speaking events often center privileged voices around hot-button topics and don’t capture everyday people or our community’s stories," Hernández said in a press release. "We want to hear from San Antonians who have given to our communities in a myriad of ways and have made this city what it is."
Each lecture will feature five speakers giving talks that range from five to 15 minutes apiece, followed by a social hour in which attendees can continue the conversation.
The inaugural event will take place at multi-use arts and creative space The Parish on Thursday, September 26. Applications for speakers from all backgrounds are open through September 14th – any San Antonian with a story to tell is welcome to apply.
Free (Reservation Required), 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, September 26, The Parish, 1624 Buena Vista St., (210) 287-7851, facebook.com/MaestranzaTX
