P.A.T.R.I.A. (Por Amar Tanto Radiante Infinito Amor), reading with Édgar Javier Ulloa Luján 

Friday, October 30th, 6:00pm - 8:00pm


Ciudad Juárez is the territory of the poet, composer and visual artist Édgar Javier Ulloa Luján. In his universe, he decides to interpret his concept of PATRIA as a word-symbol. There will be a Public Open Mic Session and performative intervention. The performative action will unite in the same moment the poetry of Edgar Ulloa and the voices of the viewers, generating a collective imaginary, re-interpreting collective memory and trauma across the border.

$5 suggested donation


This event is part of Celebrate México Now, a citywide festival of contemporary Mexican art and culture produced by CN Management.

Below is a video I made while making the post above.  I created it to demonstrate how easy it is post information to this forum.  It is actually easier to copy and paste information here than it would be to my wordpress blog, or even a to a standard webpage.  In fact, the video below is a flash file that I embedded directly into this forum (you can't even upload Flash file into youtube).

As you see from the video, it took less than 5 minutes to post this message and share it on Twitter.  If I were not actually recording a video while making the post it would have taken me all of 2 minutes. 

Just as many people, and potentially far more, will see information posted here than would see it on Facebook; PLUS people are FAR more likely to engage here with information here and click through to the underlying website.  Again this is what the web is all about.

This discussion forum is optimized for mobile, permanently archived here and discoverable via search.

Did I say that I use these forums to discover information to include in my eNewsletter?
