About the Event



  • Hello, I’m Héctor Castañeda; poet, music producer, singer-songwriter, graphic designer, event curator, gardener, UCSC junior, and much more. I consider myself a jack of all trades. Poetry is my spellwork, setting and transforming the stage for my various other creative disciplines to come into fruition. I have been part of racial, educational, and environmental justice organizations dedicated to cultivating a better future for all, especially marginalized communities. I come from San José and a proud, hard-working family of immigrants. As a second-generation college graduate in my family and an increasingly engaged member in the poetic community, I consider it a great privilege to have various mediums of communal and academic support for my writing growth.  

  • My writing and musical themes often touch on intuition, ancestral energy, linguistics, surrealism, religion, color, organized chaos, metaphysicality, (in)harmony, philosophy, queerness, biology, marginalized bodies, the rewritten and unwritten. I’m a shapeshifting chameleon night owl bellowing into the oceanic void, constantly phoenixing the architecture of my body. I’ve had the pleasure to be published in the Mercury News, various zines (“The Radical Zine Vol. 2” with The Resource Center for Nonviolence, “Lissen… Vol. 1”), Rigorous Magazine, and
