Nourishing Consciousness and Awakening Imagination
Event flyer Miller Invite – Description
By telling stories gathered along a personal and professional journey, Dr. Rael-Galvez will open a conversation about the critical importance of memory, narrative and imagination.

Prior to this position, he served as executive director of the National Hispanic Cultural Center in New Mexico and as the state historian for New Mexico and chair of the New Mexico Cultural Properties Review Committee.
