TNT: Report on Sustainable Development Project in Guatemala
Where: LASC, 5 Merrion Row, Dublin 2
When: Thursday 3rd December @ 6.30pm
On December 3rd Elaine Doyle will give a talk about her experience living and working in Guatemala this summer. Elaine was one of the awardees of the EIL Global Awareness Programme and she will present details of the sustainable development projects she worked on in Guatemala.
This is a brief interview @ 4:40 about the war on drugs and US interventions in Latin America, with a mention of LASC.
This is a nine part series of programmes with each programme focusing on a single foreign born poet who now calls Ireland home. The series intention is to present "their lives trough their poetry and their poetry trough their lives". The series will allow the listeners to follow the artistic lives of the poets from their country of birth right up to when they moved to Ireland and experience how their live journey has changed their literary production. The programmes will feature selected poems read by the Poets in English or in their native language with translation/voice over provided. The series shines a light on 'Migrant Artists' contribution to Irish Cultural landscape, a contribution which is not always recognized in Irish media.
The format of the series will be simple and straightforward with the voice of the Poets to the fore as they regale their life story and touch on many of the themes outlined above. These stories will be peppered with poems written by and recited by the author's further emphasising and giving flight to the themes.

The 14th Irish Latin American Film Festival - 2013
|Full festival programme click here
The 14th Irish Latin American Film Festival 2013 will take place once again in Belfast and Dublin, featuring shorts and documentaries about this most interesting continent. Latin America was the first to experience the disastrous impact of neoliberal masochism (that we are now experiencing in Ireland with an apathetic attitude) and the first to revolt against it. An example in this Festival is Water Rising and the resistance to privatization of water in Bolivia. It has seen a resounding return for Chávez, Morales and Correa. They have made corporations and the well-off pay their taxes (receipts have almost double in six years) raising public investment to 15% of national income, extending public ownership and re-regulating the banking system to support development!
Admission is free to this bilingual Film Festival, but attendees are requested to be on time for the screenings.
