In Oakland - August 12, 2017
CompArte was also international last year. Zapatista supporters created CompArte Festivals all over Mexico and in other countries. Here in the Bay, the Chiapas Support Committee held a CompArte Festival at the Omni Commons last year. This year, thanks to a generous grant from the Akonadi Foundation, we are able to expand CompArte to add music, dance, workshops, food and much more. It will be held at the Omni Commons on August 12 from 1 pm to 10 pm. Free admission! Were in the process of creating the publicity and inviting artists, musicians, poets and other cultural performers now. Were calling it compARTE2 and well have much more information about this soon. Save the date!
