CANTO para una Semilla
& CANTATA Santa Maria de Iquique

Posted February 1, 2017

Presented by: Colectivo 97
Supported by: Edmonton Folk Music Festival
Date: February 25, 2017
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Venue: Royal Alberta Museum, 12845-102 Avenue
Tickets: $25.00
For tickets & information: Please call: 780.934.4605 (or) 780.850.4915
About: A Song for a Seed & The Siege of Santa Maria de Iquique. An Evening of Chilean Song. Featuring two of the most important musical compositions in Latin American music history.
About Colectivo 97: Colectivo 97 is a blend of three generations of musicians who cultivate the folk music of South America in its various expressions. Members of Colectivo 97 have combined their musical talent, experience and knowledge to put together these two musical cantatas to pay tribute to the art and legacy of Chilean poet, composer, folklorist, and visual artist, Violeta Parra, and to also remember a historical industrial dispute that ended with the massacre of nitrate miners in the northern Chilean city of Iquique in 1907.
Context: both compositions/cantatas were done by Chilean composer Luis Advis in 1969 and share a common message of social justice, love/hope for a better & more just future for all. The ensemble of musicians performing today brings together community members from several countries of origin and various professions/trades, who share a love for popular art that comes from the people to the people. Assembling these two cantatas has been the fulfillment of a dream for the musicians, readers, and technical team of Colectivo 97. As with any art project, preparation of this work was full of diverse challenges as well as moments of beauty. Join us in solidarity – Colectivo 97.

Posted March 16, 2017

See Film Trailer | Buy Tickets Online

 

Date: April 1, 2017
Time: 4:00pm
Venue: Garneau Theatre
Presented by: Men Edmonton (ME) in partnership with the City of Edmonton's Gender-Based Violence Prevention Initiative
About: The Mask You Live In is a documentary following the lives of young men as they negotiate the strict expectations of manhood. These expectations include the rejection of emotions/genuine relationships, which correlate to men’s higher rates of mental illness, suicide & violent crime. The Mask You Live In ultimately demonstrates the need to raise a healthier generation of boys and young men, and how this could be achieved. The screening will lead to an engaging panel discussion of diverse, local leaders, focusing on how gendered expectations constrain and contour the lives of boys and men.
Panel Discussion: Moderated by Ryan Jespersen, 630 CHED host & active philanthropist. The panelists come with a range of backgrounds, experiences, and knowledge, as well as passion for change. Being both vulnerable and open, panelists will speak about their experiences negotiating masculinity in their own lives, the broader social forces shaping masculinity, and how they hope to transform it.
Reception: This is a unique opportunity to meet & network with other caring professionals and strong community leaders in Edmonton. Light refreshments included. Join Us!
Tickets & Info: Email info@menedmonton.org for more information.
