DreamersAdrift is a multi-media project that started in 2010 by four undocumented college graduates. The goal of the project is to use various forms of creative expression–mainly performance, music, writing and visuals–as a vehicle to take back the undocumented narrative. DreamersAdrift has produced the acclaimed web series “Undocumented & Awkward” and “Osito.” Through their dark humor and lack of professional acting skills, they’ve tackled issues like queerness, mental health and immigration policy. Currently, DreamersAdrift is being led by the Berkeley-based creativity of Jesus Iñiguez and Julio Salgado when they find the time off their day jobs.
