Cruzando fronteras: El trabajo transnacional en los artes

El junio de 2009 el encuentro “Cruzando fronteras: El trabajo transnacional en los artes” tuvo lugar en el Centro Hemisférico gracias al apoyo de la Fundación Ford y el Instituto Hemisférico. Varias organizaciones de arte, académicos y miembros de FOMMA trabajaron juntos durante una semana y compartieron sus propios métodos artísticos e innovaciones. Las organizaciones y los académicos se centraron en un compromiso al trabajo de la comunidad y a la participación de las comunidades desatendidas para asegurar una participación diversa, construir una comprensión común y promover un futuro pluralista.

Como consecuencia de ese encuentro y con la ayuda de la red del Instituto, Margarita Antonio, representante de UNESCO en Nicaragua, y Mario Bronfman, representante de la Fundación Ford en México y en América Central, invitaron a FOMMA y a la directora del Centro Hemisférico a Waspam y a Bilwi, dos comunidades en Nicaragua. Así, ellas viajaron en agosto y se quedaron allí por cinco días mientras facilitaron tres talleres de teatro para las mujeres Miskitu en Waspam y estudiantes Miskitu en la Universidad de Uraccan en Bilwi. Durante su viaje, FOMMA presentó su obra “El dueño de las mariposas” en la Universidad de Uraccan.

 

In June 2009, a conference entitled “Crossing Borders: Transnational Work in the Arts” took place in Centro Hemisférico thanks to the support of the Ford Foundation and the Hemispheric Institute. Various arts organizations, academics, and members of FOMMA worked together over the course of a week and shared their own artistic methods and innovations. The participating organizations and academics were dedicated to working in communities and to the participation of neglected communities in order to insure a diverse group of participants, build common understanding, and promote a pluralistic future.

As a result of this meeting and with the help of the Institute’s network, Margarita Antonio, representative of UNESCO in Nicaragua, and Mario Bronfman, representative of the Ford Foundation in Mexico and Central America, invited FOMMA and Centro Hemisférico’s director to Waspam and Bilwi, two communities in Nicaragua. The women travelled to the communities in August where they spent five days directing three theatre workshops for Miskitu women in Waspam and Miskitu students in the University of Uraccan in Bilwi. During their trip, FOMMA presented its play “The Owner of Butterflies” at the University of Uraccan.
