El domingo 24 de marzo a las 6:30 p.m. en el espacio de Entropía (María Adelina Flores 22A), el Centro Hemisférico realizó una recaudación de fondos multimedia que celebró la vida de la mujer con una sesión de DJ, música en vivo y proyecciones cinematográficas. Después de haber escuchado la terrible historia de una compañera cuya hermana fue asesinada por su esposo y  la historia de la Casa Cereza formada por mujeres que han salido recientemente de la cárcel, decidimos montar una recaudación de fondos para apoyar a los dos grupos.

Durante la noche, el público dejó donaciones en canastas puestas en las mesas del local mientras miraron y escucharon la rebeldía cinematográfica, musical y social de las mujeres, apoyando así a las demás mujeres cuyas voces y cuerpos han sido silenciados y borrados. Se recaudaron 1,600 pesos durante cuatro horas, gracias al apoyo económico de los 40 personas que asistieron al evento.

Durante la noche, a las 7 p.m., se presentó Oriana, una cantante local que toca el acordeón y, a las 9 p.m., lo hicieron Lucy Sessions con Guarana Groove, acompañadas por una selección musical y loops de video de mujeres cantantes, actrices y bailarinas.

 

On Sunday, March 24 at 6:30 PM in Entropía (María Adelina Flores 22A), Centro Hemisférico mounted a multimedia fundraiser in celebration of women featuring a DJ session, live music, and film projections. After having heard the terrible story of a friend whose sister was murdered by her own husband and the story of Casa Cereza, an organization formed by women who have recently left jail, we decided to create a fundraiser to support the two groups economically.

During the evening, those in attendance left donations in baskets placed on the restaurant’s tables while they watched and listened to women’s cinematographic, musical, and social rebellion as manifested in the event’s various presentations. Their economic support, in contrast, went to help the other women whose voices and bodies have been silenced and erased socially and culturally. The event raised 1,600 pesos over the course of four hours thanks to donations made by the 40 people who attended.

During the evening, Oriana, a local musician who plays the accordion, presented a musical set at 7 PM followed by Lucy Sessions and Guarana Groove at 9 PM, who were accompanied by a musical and video selection of female singers, actresses, and dancers.
