Posada: Haciendo Espacio / Posada: Making Space

In Latin America and Spain, “posada”—meaning “inn” or “accommodation”—is the symbol for traditional Christmas celebrations called Las Posadas which re-enact the story of Mary and Joseph in search of lodging in Bethlehem. In this spirit, ICA LA opens its doors to the community with a holiday family event for all ages filled with art, music, workshops, and festive food and drink.
