Since Antena’s founding in 2010, it has been a flexible vehicle for work at the intersection of language justice and language experimentation. Originally, there was just one Antena, but since then the Antenas have multiplied:

1- Antena Aire

2 - Antena Houston

3 - Antena Los Ángeles


Antena Aire

Antena Aire focuses on writing, art- and book-making, performance, language experiments, translating, interpreting, and language justice. Antena Aire explores how critical views on language can help us to reimagine and rearticulate the worlds we inhabit. The core of Antena Aire is Jen Hofer and John Pluecker.

Antena Houston & Antena Los Ángeles

At a local level in Houston and in Los Angeles, two autonomous Antena collectives promote language justice by working with organizations, communities and individuals to create dynamic, well-functioning multilingual spaces for small and large groups of people to foster open communication and attentive listening across languages and cultures. Our collectives primarily work with Spanish and English but have experience coordinating more diverse language combinations.

In 2014, Antena Los Ángeles was founded as an autonomous local language justice collective focused on building multilingual spaces locally in Southern California.

In 2015, Antena Houston was founded by Marianela Acuña Arreaza, Silvia Chicas, and John Pluecker to do the same in the Bayou City.
