Early Wednesday morning (July 3rd, 2013) programming details for the IMPACT 13 theatre festival (Sept. 24-29) were revealed. Neruda Arts also announced it’s inaugural Kultrún, Indigenous & World Music Festival.
MT Space Artistic Director Majdi Bou-Matar and Neruda artistic director Isabel Cisterna addressed arts supporters and members of the media to also announce their partnership for We Are Culture. Bou-Matar says, “there’s an intercultural aspect to the festivities. When we bring together people from different backgrounds who share their own stories and histories, it creates a much richer experience.”
The two festivals will be connected by We Are Culture 7 additional events that create a full season of culturally diverse performing arts.
