A Dialogue on “The Influence of Africa on Traditional Folk Culture in Cuba & the Americas”
with Afro Cuban Artist and Activist Mirna Padrón Dickson

Contributions by members of Sisters In Stitches Joined By The Cloth Quilters’ Guild.

Black Cuban feminists, cultural promoters, and popular educators Mirna Padrón Dickson and Diarenis Rosa Calderon Tartabull direct an Independent artistic-social project called MirArte Diadia. These activists use their creativity as a vehicle for social transformation. They apply a differential and intersectional approach that uses their experiences in Political Education in Human Rights and the Culture of Peace, with a gender perspective.

Join us at the Lothrop Auditorium at Community Church of Boston for a discussion and viewing of paintings by Afro-Cuban artist Erasmo Aguilar Rosely, performance, promotion and curatorial ideas by Mirna, with collaborators: Encuentro 5, Angie Holiday, and quilts by members of Sisters In Stitches Joined By The Cloth.
