Primera Feria Cultural y XXI del Libro Dominicano y Word Up Librería Comunitaria presenta

JUSTICIA SOCIAL Y CULTURAL
presentando Claudia de la Cruz (moderadora), Cleyvis Natera, y Reynaldo García Pantaleón
Domingo 17 de octubre @ 1pm

A través de esta conversación, esperamos explorar cómo los escritores y los creadores de cultura pueden encarnar o incorporar cuestiones de justicia social en su trabajo y, de hecho, preguntarnos hasta qué punto son responsables de esto. ¿Cómo puede la cultura ayudar e impulsar los movimientos sociales? ¿Cómo afectan los movimientos sociales a la cultura? ¿Cuál es la responsabilidad del escritor y del artista de impulsar el mundo que queremos ver?

SOCIAL JUSTICE & CULTURE
featuring Claudia de la Cruz (moderator), Cleyvis Natera, and Reynaldo García Pantaleón
Sunday, October 17 @ 1pm

Through this conversation, we hope to explore how writers and culture makers can embody or incorporate issues of social justice into their work—and indeed ask how much they are responsible to/for this. How can culture aid and push social movements? How do social movements affect culture? What is the responsibility of the writer and artist to push for the world we want to see?
