You are sitting in a room of people and your name is called. You raise your hand and say “¡Presente!” — I am here, I belong.
Join us for an evening of multi-arts performances that explore complex stories of home and, belonging in Santa Fe—issues affecting Santa Fe’s future. Produced by Santa Fe-based arts nonprofit Littleglobe, ¡Presente! features Santa Feans of all ages—including students, professional musicians and artists, and other longtime residents—sharing their stories through music, movement, spoken word, short documentaries, and artistic video.
