Baltimore Green Party Community Calendar – 7pm Headquarters Thursday Workshop Series Information

Thurs, June 15, 7pm (HEADQUARTERS Thursday Workshop Series) Barcelona-Baltimore: Models for the Resistance in the Tourism/Cultura Economy (w/ Taller de Costura de Código Abierto)

Living in a city that is a brand name, where culture is used strategically to promote the interests of a few, exposes the need to struggle as cultural producers. Part One: The 2004 Forum of the Cultures: A six-month event held by the city of Barcelona, supposedly promoting “peace, multiculturalism, and sustainability” was funded by companies who profit from war and gentrification. The long, hard struggle by social movements in Barcelona converted this development scheme into a PR nightmare for the city of Barcelona. (Part Two: The City Ordinance Promoting Civic Behavior TBA)
