La exposición que viaja de Este a Oeste muestra las obras de 47 artistas cristianos, musulmanes y judíos de 15 países, y se centra en los hilos comunes de las tres religiones abrahámicas.“El arte es un catalizador”, dijo el Rdo. Paul-Gordon Chandler, sacerdote episcopal y compañero en misión, que dirige CARAVAN, una empresa sin fines de lucro que organizó la exposición internacional de arte. “Nos permite abordar temas muy sensibles y difíciles de manera que los muros no suban… La dimensión trascendente del arte nos da una manera de hablar contemplativa y más profunda —y toca otro elemento dentro de nosotros que el diálogo interreligioso tradicional no consigue”.La exposición se inauguró originalmente en la iglesia de San German de los Prados [St. Germain des Pres], la iglesia más antigua de París, en febrero de 2015 —tres semanas después de que los pistoleros asaltaran las oficinas del periódico Charlie Hebdo. Siete ciudades y 18 meses más tarde, la exposición está haciendo su escala final este mes en Wyoming, unas pocas semanas después de que un grupo antiislámico quemara un Corán. El mismo grupo está pidiendo la ilegalización del islam en el estado, según Wyoming Public Radio.“Adán y Eva” por el artista egipcio Guirguis Lotfi.Si bien la población de Wyoming es predominantemente blanca —cerca de un 85 por ciento—, el aumento moderado de su población se atribuye a un número creciente de miembros de las minorías. Pese a que su sobrenombre es el de “Estado Igualdad”, Wyoming no cuenta con ningún programa de reasentamiento de refugiados. Cuando la primera mezquita abrió sus puertas en la ciudad de Gillette, en el nordeste del estado, en diciembre pasado, algunos vecinos de la localidad iniciaron una página de Facebook a la que llamaron “Detengan el islam en Gillette”.Sobre este trasfondo viene este exposición de arte que se llama acertadamente “El Puente”.“El mensaje, de cierto manera, es bastante sencillo: el arte de cualquier tipo —literatura, música, pintura— puede desempeñar un papel importante en tender puentes entre religiones y culturas muy diferentes que deben existir juntas sobre el planeta”, dijo Press Stephens, director ejecutivo de la Fundación para la Diócesis Episcopal de Wyoming, una organización sin fines de lucro con sede en Casper que brinda apoyo económico y de otros programas a la Diócesis de Wyoming.“Esta exposición nos ofrece a nosotros en Wyoming un vislumbre de una circunstancia que existe en el Oriente Medio donde diferentes culturas tienen que compartir un espacio común y tienen que encontrar un terreno común”.Una variedad de programas, muchos de los cuales han sido auspiciados y presentados por iglesias episcopales de Wyoming, ampliarán la exposición, tales como lecturas de poesía que incluyen poemas de los maestros sufíes Rumi, Hafez, Yunus y Baba Taher; proyecciones cinematográficas, entre ellas Azul como yo [Blue Like Me] un documental acerca de una estadounidense criada en una pequeña comunidad judía Bene Israel en la India; y foros de discusión sobre temas como, por ejemplo, en qué consiste vivir en el Oriente Medio.“Esta es una estupenda oportunidad para que la Norteamérica rural sea parte de esta exposición”, dijo Stephens. La mayoría de los otros lugares de la gira de la exposición han sido grandes ciudades, donde acaso el arte es “predicar a los conversos”, dijo Stephen, [es decir] atraer al tipo de personas que ya tiene sentimientos semejantes.“El árbol” por el artista egipcio Yasser RostromLa cultura conservadora de Wyoming atrajo a Chanler. Reconoció la tensión entre cristianos y musulmanes en el estado. “Hemos venido justo al corazón de esto, al lugar donde los estereotipos son bastante fuertes”.Pero Chandler cree que el arte tiene el poder de derribar muros y de edificar relaciones.Aunque las obras de arte fueron creadas por docenas de personas de diferentes religiones y culturas, “todas ellas resuenan con una sola voz: nuestra compartida humanidad, nuestra naturaleza común”, dijo Lilianne Milgrom, artista judía y natural de Australia. Milgrom, que es cocuradora de la muestra, ha sido testigo de la capacidad del arte de desatar poderosas pasiones para bien y para mal. Por ejemplo, ella recuerda cómo la propaganda nazi provocó el antisemitismo y condujo a la matanza y prisión de millones de judíos —entre ellos su madre, que sobrevivió.“El arte apela directamente a las emociones. Circunvala la lógica”, explica ella, de manera que orientar el poder trascendente del arte hacia el bien es vital. “Con [el antecedente de] mi madre que vivió el Holocausto, creo que es de particular importancia para mí ser receptiva, no escuchar a mis propios estereotipos arraigados y prejuiciados, y abrirme a la gente”.Como artista y ahora como cocuradora, ella se ha sorprendido por la abrumadora respuesta [que ha recibido] la exposición “El Puente” en su gira internacional. Miles de personas han visitado las exposiciones y han participado de los programas.“Hay una gran necesidad de esto. La gente está hambrienta de ello”, afirmó Milgrom. “Hay tantas malas noticias, tanta ansiedad y tanto estrés. La gente está diciendo ‘por favor dennos más de esto para que podamos encontrar que hay otro camino`”.Ella cita una nueva política en Italia como un ejemplo de cómo la gente ve el arte como una herramienta para la transformación. A partir del 15 de septiembre, los adolescentes italianos, al cumplir los 18 años, recibirán el equivalente a $566 para gastar en teatros, conciertos y museos. El primer ministro italiano, Matteo Renzi, presentó la propuesta hace un año después de otro atentado terrorista en París. Su argumento es que el arte y la cultura tienen el poder de desactivar el prejuicio y el miedo.“Eternamente humana”, artista egipcia Nagla SamirEn su discurso, él dijo: “ellos conciben el terror, nosotros respondemos con la cultura. Ellos destruyen estatuas, nosotros amamos el arte. Ellos destruyen libros, nosotros somos el país de las bibliotecas”.Chandler ha dedicado su vida a construir puentes entre culturas. Nacido en EE.UU., creció en Senegal, África Occidental, donde su padre era ministro cristiano y la mayoría de sus amigos eran musulmanes. Como sacerdote episcopal, su ministerio ha incluido trabajar con agencias de socorro, casas editoriales y como rector de iglesias en Tunes y El Cairo. Fue como rector de la iglesia anglicana de San Juan [St. John’s] en El Cairo que Chandler comenzó a utilizar el arte como un modo de alentar el entendimiento y la amistad entre las religiones.“Durante mucho tiempo percibía la tensión que con frecuencia existe entre musulmanes y cristianos”, dijo Chandler. “Y pensaba, ha de haber otra vía. Y ha sido un trayecto de la vida entera para encontrar una vía para salvar, genuinamente, la brecha entre las dos fes y las dos culturas”.El recordaba cómo una delegación de 22 imanes vino a la inauguración de una exposición que presentó su iglesia, San Juan, y fueron los últimos en irse.“Yo era el primer sacerdote que ellos habían conocido”, contó Chandler. “Y pensaba, ‘hemos conseguido cambiar eso’”. Trabajando con los imanes y con otras personas, se organizó un programa de intercambio de sacerdotes e imanes a través de la Diócesis [Anglicana] de Egipto en que los líderes clericales vivieron en los hogares de los otros durante un fin de semana, comiendo, conversando, compartiendo y adorando juntos. En la actualidad 400 imanes y sacerdotes han participado en el programa.“Eso ha cambiado profundamente el mutuo entendimiento del liderazgo religioso”, dijo él.La experiencia decidió a Chandler en 2009 a crear CARAVAN, que él describe como una [entidad] internacional, sin fines de lucro, de las artes para el fomento de la paz.“El Puente” es la última de casi una docena de diferentes exposiciones de arte para el fomento de la paz presentadas por CARAVAN. La exposición “El Puente” se ha presentado en una variedad de lugares, entre ellos, Egipto; la iglesia de San Martín del Campo [St. Martin-in-the-Fields] en la Plaza de Trafalgar, en Londres; la capilla de San Pablo [St. Paul’s Chapel] en Nueva York y la catedral episcopal de La Trinidad [Trinity Episcopal Cathedral] en Portland, Oregón. Su gira global concluye con la exposición en Wyoming.Reda Abdel Rahman, uno de los primeros artistas contemporáneos de Egipto y cocurador de “El Puente” y proveniente de un medio musulmán, viajó a Wyoming para ayudar a montar la exposición. Él anhelaba que la gente de Wyoming viera y experimentara el arte.“Para algunas personas, es la primera vez que ven arte del Oriente Medio”, dijo Rahman. “Resulta útil tender el puente, ver que somos lo mismo. Tenemos que mirar a los demás como mirándonos al espejo. Estas [obras de] arte nos ayudan a ver al otro en nosotros mismos, a poner a un lado la política y a abrazarnos”.La posibilidad y la promesa del arte es lo que impulsa a Chandler y a su ministerio con CARAVAN.“Siempre estoy sorprendido de cuan semejantes somos. Al final del día, todos cambiamos por las experiencias que tenemos”, afirmó él. “Lo que estamos comprometidos a hacer es proporcionar una nueva experiencia del otro. Es un viaje para todos nosotros y nuestro papel es facilitar el viaje”.– Richelle Thompson es subdirectora y gerente editorial de Forward Movement. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

first_imgFriday Aug 28, 2020 Lions and Bulls announce fight between two Springboks The Lions and Bulls announce today that their players, and former Springboks teammates, Elton Jantjies and Cornal Hendricks will face each other in a fight next Wednesday in ‘The Battle of the Backs’.ADVERTISEMENTIn an announcement that completely blindsided many, the bout will be streamed on September 2nd on Facebook.There is not yet any clarification as to what sport the two will be competing in, other than it will be a fight, but the Bulls, who the 12-cap Hendricks signed for last year, wrote on their poster for the fight: “From rugby fields to octagons, history will be made”.Meanwhile, in some pre-fight hype to whet the appetite, the World Cup winner Jantjies promised “There will be blood!”As rugby is still yet to return in South Africa due to the COVID-19 pandemic, players have obviously had a lot of time on their hands over the past months, and Jantjies and Hendricks are prepped to show the fruits of their labour during lockdown.ADVERTISEMENTBut with South African sides set to return to contact training next week as a return to rugby draws closer, this may be the last chance the two have to punch each other in the face without receiving a red card.This is another fascinating twist in the career of the 32-year-old Hendricks, who retired in 2015 due to a heart defect. He made his return to professional rugby last year when signing for the Bulls, and now looks to be turning his hand to combat sports.According to their clubs’ websites, Henricks stands at 1.88m (6ft 2ins) and weighs 95kgs (14st 13lbs) while Jantjies is smaller and lighter at 1.77m (5ft 10ins) and 88kgs (13st 12lbs).So while there is a mismatch between the two, that does not make the situation any stranger than it is already.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Built for a public social housing body, this building is located on the Avenue de Grande-Bretagne in Toulouse joins an existing complex of low-rise blocks and a sixteen storey tower block laid out around a park planted with trees.

Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultThe new building both complements an existing complex and constitutes its new entrance. It is laid out along the Avenue de Grande-Bretagne, set back from the street and has a wide porch connecting the public space of the avenue with the interior of the estate. The compact, rationally and repetitively structured building features 61 dual-aspect flats overlooking the avenue to the north and the park to the south. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultThe large ground floor flats are maisonettes with independent entrances and private patios, which means they feel similar to individual housing units. From the second to the seventh floor 2, 3 and 4 room flats are accessed via a network of walkways running along the north-facing façade. These open walkways are buffer spaces that afford privacy for the flats and shelter them from traffic noise. Save this picture!plan 02On the south side, wide full-length loggias with translucent sliding sunscreens offer all the flats a large, private outside area. The design is expressed using rational construction methods and features overhanging loggias and walkways. The repetitive “stacking” approach is offset by the varied way the sliding sunscreens on the south facing loggias are arranged. The colour of the façades echoes the white and pale grey neighbouring buildings and creates a subtle sense of the varying light and shadow falling on the building.

first_imgSubway artists and police brutality activists held a news conference at City Hall on Aug. 12 to protest the racist crackdown by the New York Police Department against performers in the mass transit system.According to media reports in early July, arrests of subway performers have increased by 500 percent under Commissioner William Bratton, from 40 arrests in 2013 to 240 so far this year.Matthew Christian of the performer advocacy group Busk NY explained that the NYPD ignores official MTA rules of conduct when they harass artists performing on subway platforms and mezzanines. He offered copies of the rules to journalists to see for themselves.Andrew “Goofy” Saunders of the W.A.F.F.L.E. NY dance collective spoke out about how he was unjustly arrested and jailed. “We just want to dance,” he said. “The NYPD has repeatedly gone beyond the provisions of the MTA’s rules of conduct by charging train dancers — often young Black or Latino males — with misdemeanor reckless endangerment, even when no injuries have been demonstrated during decades of performances,” asserted Josmar Trujillo of New Yorkers Against Bratton.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Laokolé, who was arrested in N’Djamena on the night of 22 March, is also an author, activist and humanitarian worker.“Protests in Chad and abroad – by organizations such as Internet Without Borders, Human Rights Without Borders and Amnesty International – failed to elicit any information from the authorities about Laokolé and why he is being held,” Reporters Without Borders said.“What is he supposed to have done, why has he been held for such a long time, and why is he being held incommunicado? Everything indicates that the authorities did not like what he was posting online under the blog name of Vourboubé Pierre, and that they arrested him when it was revealed that he was the blogger.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We urge the Chadian government to immediately provide information about the state of Laokolé’s health and the reasons for his detention.”On the night of 22 March, Laokolé was driving with family members in the N’Djamena district of Atrone when he was stopped by a group of men in civilan dress and was forced to get into their vehicle.Amnesty International has quoted Chadian human rights activists as saying he was seen three days later in the former OCAM military camp and was subsequently transferred to an unofficial camp at Amsinene, 30 km outside the capital, which is notorious for its use by the intelligence services for heavy-handed interrogation and torture.According to his family, Laokolé had been summoned for questioning by the criminal investigation police earlier on the day of his arrest as the result of a complaint about an article posted on an exile blog called Le blog de Makaila (http://makaila.over-blog.com/) under the pseudonym of Vourboubé Pierre.The plaintiffs claimed that the blog post made “false accusations” against them. After negotiations, Laokolé gave them an apology. But the complaint served to confirm that he was the writer who used this well-known blog name.Three days before his arrest, he was named as the blog’s author in an article on the pro-government blog VisionduTchad.net that began: “Who is this author? Our blog has discovered who is hiding behind these pseudonyms and who is flooding us with disinformation.” It named not only Laokolé but also members of his family and gave details about his personal life.His last blog entry, posted on 16 March, may also have prompted his arrest. It identified a number of persons as working as intelligence agents for Jean-Bernard Padare, the minister of land affairs.Laokolé is the son of Jean-Baptiste Laokolé, the deputy general secretary of the opposition Freedoms and Development Party (PLD), and nephew of Saleh Kebzabo, a parliamentarian and president of the opposition National Union for Development and Renewal (UNDR).Learn more about freedom of information in Chad: * Press releases * Country filePhotograph: Chanian security forces (Issouf Sanogo – AFP) October 7, 2020 Find out more to go furtherlast_img read more

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — On Tuesday, we are watching the South for severe weather and the West for possible feet of snow. Let’s start with the South where a storm system is moving across the Gulf Coast with severe storms. These storms could produce damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes. Cities that will see severe weather Tuesday will be Montgomery, Alabama; Tallahassee and Jacksonville, Florida; Savannah, Georgia; and Charleston, South Carolina.There are a couple of storm systems moving from the West Coast into the northern Plains with heavy snow for the area over the next 48 to 72 hours. As of Tuesday morning, five states are under snow alerts from Washington to Wyoming and these alerts will be expanded into the northern Plains as we move through the morning and afternoon.By Wednesday night into Thursday, cold air will mix with the storm system bringing heavy snow all the way into the Dakotas.

first_imgThe UK is providing a new package of life-saving support to help treat patients in 11 hospitals under pressure in Gaza, by restocking vital medical supplies including surgical equipment, bandages and medicines following the recent surge in violence.The funding, announced by Minister for the Middle East Alistair Burt today (Tuesday 29 May) on a visit to Gaza, will support work by the International Committee of the Red Cross to keep hospitals open and functioning at a time when the healthcare system is under huge strain.Today’s commitment of £1.5 million will also help provide physical rehabilitation services for around 4,000 people.Speaking from Gaza, Minister for the Middle East Alistair Burt said: If you have an urgent media query, please email the DFID Media Team on [email protected] in the first instance and we will respond as soon as possible. I am deeply concerned about the worsening situation in the Gaza strip, and today’s UK aid package gives a message to the world, and to the people of Gaza, that we have not forgotten them or their plight. Today’s support will help to ensure that hospitals which are under immense pressure are able to cope with the increased number of casualties who need medical and surgical care. It is absolutely vital that the UK steps up to help those suffering and ensure that vulnerable Gazans are able to access treatment to keep them alive. We have been clear that a political settlement is the only way to ensure lasting peace for Palestinians and Israelis alike. All parties must redouble their political efforts and return to the negotiating table, not only to address the deteriorating conditions in Gaza, but to ensure tragedies of the past months are not repeated. General media queries (24 hours) Telephone 020 7023 0600 Email [email protected] UK support is already providing Gazans with access to clean water, and improving sanitation facilities to help stop the spread of deadly disease.Through the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees (UNRWA), UK aid is providing basic health and education to 1.3 million people in Gaza, as well as over 800,000 refugees in the West Bank.Minister Burt announced in March at the Rome Conference that the UK will deliver its next round of financial support to UNRWA earlier than originally planned to help meet the growing needs of Palestinian refugees across the region.Notes to editorsToday’s £1.5 million package is a new allocation from the Occupied Palestinian Territories programme budget for 2018/19.last_img read more
