Firehouse Community Events

The MNN El Barrio Firehouse is committed to collaboration and community building. Toward this goal, the Firehouse presents a variety of events on social justice and cultural issues to encourage dialogue and networking among activists, artists, neighborhood residents, and local cultural and media organizations. Hosted in the George C. Stoney Community Studio, activities include panel discussions, book presentations, cultural performances, film screenings and community celebrations.

The MNN El Barrio Firehouse Film Club celebrates films about the African and Latin diaspora experience in the United States and the global struggle for human rights. It offers a forum for discussions on history, politics, education, community, spirituality and more. Intended for intergenerational audiences, the screenings are free and open to the public.

The Film Club meets from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on the first Friday of every month.
