To the Hispanic/Latino community, Morir Soñando means “to die dreaming,” but in the city of Lawrence, MA, it is a platform. This platform allows you to not only to immerse yourself in surrounding cultures, but to also let go and express yourself.
Being able to express yourself requires you to show the good and the bad of your own reality, no matter the stakes.

This being the second time Morir Soñando has been put together, it’s gotten nothing but positive feedback. The movement was created by Nilson Mata, who’s goal was to both curate an event and create hype around it, bringing the community together for something bigger than themselves.
For those who come to enjoy these shows, they come from families who’ve migrated to the United States. This means that they are no strangers to understanding what it takes to sacrifice all they know for a better life.
Putting everything at risk is something those of migrated decent have in their blood. They are willing to strive for something greater even if there are no guarantees. Morir Soñando Two was a mixture of everything creative, including spoken word, music, fashion, interpretive dancing, art, and cultural cuisine.
This time around, attendees also enjoyed stand-up comedy, cultural dances, battle Rap, a boxing match and more. Strictly doing it for the culture, Hispanic cuisine was served alongside the famous Dominican drink — also called morir soñando — for free. Everyone is welcome to Morir Soñando Three to shape a better future for the community.
