Creative director for Planet Chambo in Chicago, Illinois, he finds energy and rest through his own creative work as a DJ, spending time with family and friends, and sports. He brings interests and knowledge in youth program design, video and audio production, DJing, artist network, and podcast production to the Fellowship. 

Cesar would like to travel to the largest solar plant in Morocco and record local traditions of music in Ecuador.

Dancing for Environmental Justice

The Project
"Dancing for Environmental Justice" aims to eliminate the barriers to inclusive, just, and sustainable access to green spaces across Chicago through transformative artistic performances that feature BIPOC artists. Our team intends to use the CEE mini-grant funding to fund episodes 2 and 3, which will take place at Steel Workers Park and the Chicago Botanic Garden on September 10th and September 21st. The Chicago Park District and Chicago Botanic Garden have agreed to partner with our team to host our DJ, dancer, and video team. This project will illustrate a unique way that we can use art as a catalyst to connect BIPOC artists and educators to green spaces in Chicago.
