The time in Havana, Cuba
Havana, Cuba.-Artists and cultural promoters from Cuba and Venezuela will gather at the workshop Imaniginarios populares and transformacion sociocultural-Popular imaginaries and sociocultural transformations- that will take place from September 22 to 27, in Matanzas province, aimed at creating an academic framework around the work in the community, from experiences developed in different Latin American and Caribbean nations.
This event, sponsored by the Afroatenas Matanzas project, along with the Bolivarian University of Venezuela, is focused on those proposals that foster educational and transformation processes in the neighborhoods and, in searching a theoretical framework which allows the conceptualization of the issue, will talk about “the creative power of the ordinary: desire, imagination and multiplicity as threads for an heterology of the sensitive experience in Our America”.
Havana, Cuba.-The 75th anniversary of the founding of the Orchestra Aragon will be celebrated with the first edition of the conference "On the paths of music", on September 30 in the central city of Cienfuegos, where the orchestra was created that day, in 1939 by Orestes Aragón.
"Since then, that cuban band has brought Cuban music to more than 40 countries in Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa," recalled Carlos Diaz, director of the "Benny Moré" Arts Cultural Center. Theoretical day will culminate the same day, September 30 at night, when a concert will take place as a tribute to Aragon orchestra at the Tomás Terry Theater.
Havana, Cuba.-The Miami-based Alianza Martiana Coalition has announced that a car caravan will take place on September 6th to demand the release of the three anti-terrorist Cubans still imprisoned in the United States.
It is our duty to continue to call for their release, according to the statement, which refers to the immediate freedom of Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labanino and Antonio Guerrero, who along Rene Gonzalez and Fernando Gonzalez, already free in Cuba, were given unfair prison sentences in 2001 by a Miami court after the monitored Florida-based terrorist organizations.
