Fighting Poverty with Passion
Mondo Bizarro has been touring the Loup Garou this past month, ending it in the mountains of Berea, KY for a festival called Clear Creek Festival. We also created an installation with a huge fishnet and some images from a photographer that collected images from her family down in southern Louisiana. There was a great discussion about the Oil and how its destroying our land. There was also a table set up with information on how to get in touch with The Gulf Restoration Network to continue the work that needs to be done.
We are soon heading back to Kentucky for a week long residency for the Race Peace, a multidisciplinary performance, dialogue and workshop about race and racism. We will be traveling to Whitesburg, KY with M.U.G.A.B.E.E. (Men Under Guidance Acting Before Early Extinction. We are also finalizing some of the I-Witness Central City videos to celebrate the stories we have completed some time this fall, by throwing a gathering with the community in Central City. That’s all for now, here are Mondo Bizarro. – “”No heredamos la tierra de nuestros antepasados: la pedimos prestada de nuestros hijos”” – Proverbio indígena
