TONIGHT: PREGONES' SPOTLIGHT - 7:30PM - FEATURING: EDWIN PAGÁN

“Looking and seeing are two different things. When you look at the world one way and are trying to get around, that's that. But when you begin to see differences —the truth in your environment, people, how they interact— then you start getting a different consciousness about how you can document the community.” –Edwin Pagán

He is co-founder of PAX and Seis del Sur, undoing stereotypes by circulating authentic visual documents of the South Bronx. He is Founder In Chief of LatinHorror.com.

Community Garden Volunteers Fear Rule Changes Herald End Of Oases

This is an issue we have been watching closely and have discussed the last two meetings of the Collective.

It is going to affect how people interact in community gardens, as well as how artists can utilize these community spaces. This ultimately impacts our distinct South Bronx cultural verisimilitude, as we all have gardens in our regional neighborhoods.

Community garden volunteers are gearing up for a fight against the city's new rules for how they operate.

Honored to have had the opportunity to represent the Bronx Culture Collective (BxCC) and share with the board of directors of Grantmakers In The Arts (GIA) about ways philanthropy can organically benefit the arts in communities of color.

Over 25 dedicated funders from around the country came out to have a genuine discussion about innovative ways by which to better serve the cultural spaces and places that need it most, both fiscally and via technical assistance.

The gathering was hosted at the Bronx Documentary Center.

READ a masterful analysis by Bobby Sanabria of the re-imaging of the musical classic West Side Story, that takes a comprehensive look of the film's symbolism, the varied musical genres that influenced the production, and how our community's time-honored cultural traditions and idiosyncrasies had a direct impact on one of the most influential and best known films of our time.
