Latin American Congress of Living Cultures

Rituals, reflections, poetic “assaults”… From May 17 to 23, 2013, the first Latin American Congress of Community Living Cultures [es] will invade the streets of La Paz, Bolivia. The city will host government representatives from Brazil and Colombia, along with more than one thousand activists.

Besides debates, seminars, film screenings, workshops and poetic “interventions” around the city, authorities and delegates from cultural organizations in Latin America will discuss and exchange experiences. They will also request regional governments to designate at at least 0.1% of national budgets to fund Community Living Culture initiatives.

The full programme is available on the Congress website www.congresoculturavivacomunitaria.org [es] [pt].
