The EastSide Café: A liberated learning zone
by Flores, David, M.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 121; 1526906
Abstract (Summary)

Following the 1994 uprising of the Zapatistas, an indigenous army in southern Mexico, a small community arts and education center was developed in East Los Angeles that believed another world was possible. This research seeks to examine the alternative nature and learning of the EastSide Café. Guided by Zapatismo, Chicana Feminism, and decolonial theory, seven EastSide Café members were asked to offer the details of how the EastSide Café promotes alternative learning. The findings present a simple culture of horizontality, but more importantly, a praxis of a liberated learning zone that shifts the consciousness of participants by showing that another world, another way, is possible.
