Cuba en el Siglo XXI: Cultura e Identidad en movimiento | Diálogo con la Comunidad

Community Conversation
Cuba en el Siglo XXI: Cultura e Identidad en Movimiento
Cuba, XXI Century:  Culture, and Identity in Motion
 Friday July 7, 2017 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Toronto Public Library -Lillian H. Smith Library
 (239 College St, Toronto, ON)
Here is some information on the Community Conversations Project launched by York University's Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies:
York University's Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies is committed to engaging meaningfully with the community. Community Conversations is a new initiative to encourage dialogue and discussions on topics that matter and are of keen interest to members of our community. These conversations will be held in a variety of locations across the GTA: cafés, libraries, community centers and anywhere that constructive dialogue can flourish. We hope to create welcoming spaces where people from diverse communities can gather and share their unique insights and experiences.
We hope to bring together the talents, spirit, energy, curiosity and interests of our diverse citizenry to promote inclusive, and inspiring dialogue on current local and global issues that could include history, ecology, the environment, arts, media, urbanism, health, poverty, current socio-economic and political issues, and a range of ideas and topics that inspire critical dialogue and engaging thoughts.
Conversation is a powerful tool that connects us and provides a unique opportunity for knowledge sharing, human growth and empowerment, and community building. Community Conversations are public, semi-structured and open to anyone who is interested in the topic. Essentially, conversations are intended to spark the exchange of ideas!
For our particular topic, we will go beyond salsa, rumba, cigars, rum and sunshine…Our conversation will debate stereotypes and preconceived notions of Cuban culture and identity, as well as explore the constructs of Cuban identities before and after 1959, and the implications of the Cuban Revolution in the development of a new culture that is inclusive and participatory.
Refreshments will be served!
Please see attached poster to register for free today! 
We hope to see everyone there!  Please feel free to distribute to your lists and on social media!

Warm regards,
Julio Fonseca & Roberta Iannacito-Provenzano
