Poetic Afternoons @ the Casa

“Poetry, Stories and Encounters” is a monthly meeting being held at CatComm's Casa in Rio. The idea for this event came up during one of the “Open Space” meetings held monthly at the Casa. The idea ties CatComm into Rio's Port Zone Cultural Corridor as one of the area's cultural activities. Among many suggestions that came up at the time, it has been made reality. Initially the participants were writers from the city's low-income communities, but today anyone who has a relationship with literature is welcome.

There have already been four encounters. The first was on August 23, the second and third were held on September 6 and 7 and the most recent on October 18.

Objectives of these encounters:
To bring together and connect poets, story tellers, and writers to share their writings through readings and appraisal of the work. In the future the group plans to take this work to the street and who knows? ... perhaps one day publishing a collection. The direction it will take depends on the group's participants.

Talent is certainly not missing.

The organization of the meetings is the undertaking of Waldir Candido, actor and theatre director.

Join us!

Date of the next Encounter: November 8, 2007, 3:00 pm, in CatComm's Casa.
