16 Days of ARTivism! Closing celebration – Songs for a New Beginning – for Healing & Education

Friday December 10th, 2010  Teatro del MCCLA, 7:00pm
Suggested donation: $5-$20

Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts 2868 Mission Street, San Francisco CA 94110

In recognition of the 62nd anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the closing of the 16 days of ARTivism for the healing of violence toward women and girls, MamaCoAtl hosts an evening of poetry, spoken word and performance art dedicated to ending violence against women, immigrants and the LGBT community. The multiple ways that people from these communities are the targets of violence represent the most egregious violations of human rights today. Tonight, we celebrate our human rights and reclaim those that have been taken from us.

Featured artists: Cihuatl Ce, HeadRush Productions, MamaCoatl, Yosimar Reyes, a special performance by Violeta Luna, and much more.

Activities to raise public awareness that say “END Violence Against Women & Girls!”

April is National Poetry Month but every day is poetry.  When I listen to songs, I tend to remember the lyrics before I can remember the melodies.  Commercials hook me when I hear poetry in them.

Here are poets I pay attention to.  They all wear many brilliant hats.

  • Yolande Barial, founder of Your Words Project.  You just have to meet Yolande and hear her poetry, her spoken word.  Please add audio to your blog.

    My hat off to you, Martha, Joan, Deborah, Yolande, Maxine!
