All the Sacrifices You’ve Made / Todos los Sacrificios Que has Hecho
A Project by Borderland Collective
February 5 – October 16, 2022
All the Sacrifices You’ve Made / Todos Los Sacrificios Que Has Hecho is a collaboration between students and staff from the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at the University of Washington and Borderland Collective, an arts collective from Texas. Participants curated photos from their family albums, made new photographs, and recorded their oral histories. The resulting exhibition creates a uniquely personal connection between the viewer and the families and serves as an acknowledgment of the contributions, resilience, joys, and sacrifices made by farmworkers from the Eastern Washington agricultural regions of Yakima and Wenatchee.
Hear from Borderland Collective’s curators Jason Reed and Mark Menjivar along with Luz M. Iginuez, former director of CAMP at the University of Washington, in this program presented on Jan. 29, 2022:
The exhibition was created by Borderland Collective’s Mark Menjivar and Jason Reed with CAMP staff and students including Luz Iniguez, Natalia Esquivel Silva, Orfil Olmos, Gabriela Ruiz, Moises Mendez, and Alondra Torres.
In the adjacent gallery, this contemporary exhibition is complemented by a selection of archival items from the Washington State Historical Society’s collections exploring the political and economic histories of land and labor in the region.
When the All The Sacrifices You Have Made / Todos Los Sacrificios Que Has Hecho ends, the family photographs and oral histories will be added to the WSHS permanent collections, preserving these meaningful histories for generations to come.

Seattle Center Festál
Seattle Center Festál presents Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias in partnership with Sea Mar Community Health Centers.
Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias commemorates the independence of Latin American countries, many of which celebrate their national independence day in the month of September. It is a festival to celebrate history, while taking pride in the new generations of Latinos who now call the United States home.
Throughout the two-day event at Seattle Center, attendees can enjoy delicious traditional Latin American food and cooking demonstrations, live music, traditional folk dance performances, art exhibitions representing Latino culture, free health screenings, children’s activities and more.
This event is free and open to the public.
Sea Mar began hosting Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias over twenty years ago in the South Park neighborhood of Seattle. Sea Mar extended the celebration to Seattle Center when they joined Festál in 2010. Since then, the festival has been put on every year during one weekend in mid-September. On Saturday, Sea Mar hosts a parade and community festival in South Park, which has become a great tradition that many families look forward to year after year. On Saturday and Sunday, Sea Mar hosts a large festival at Seattle Center with a variety of fun activities for everyone of all ages to enjoy in celebration of Latino culture.
The festival is an important celebration for Sea Mar because its organization was founded by a group of Latino community leaders in 1978. This group sought to address the healthcare needs in western Washington, specifically among the Spanish-speaking communities. Sea Mar understands the barriers Latinos and other immigrant communities may face when navigating the healthcare system, pursuing a higher education, or simply trying to make a living. For this reason, Sea Mar goes beyond primary care and has established additional programs, services, and events like Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias to celebrate Latino cultural traditions.
