    Louis philippe and Fatima are here for Montréal 2009 - they expressed
    interest , but did not concretize it partly due to lack of time in the last

    Hi Pierre and everyone involved in SFEX
    A brief word to update you on the progress towards the Forum of Culture and Education for Transformation, Belem, July 24-26, 2010. 
    We have just completed a preparatory Forum for Cultural Solidarity in the region of Carajas, southern Para, Brazil, based in nine peripherary communities in the cities of Maraba, Eldorado dos Carajas and Parauapebas. The Forum was co-organised by 6 'Points of Culture', MST, FETAGRI, more than 24 cultural organizations, ABRA (the Brazilian Network of Arteducators), the Forum for Cultural Solidarity in Peru, and IDEA (the International Drama Education Association). Between 22-26 September, some 60 self-organized roundtables, training workshops and presentations were attended by 9000 people, made up mostly of community participants, teachers, cultural activists and community artists.
    We have also just completed a three-day seminar for 60 socio-cultural activists working in the interface between social transformation and arts education in the city of Sao Paulo, co-organised by community orgnizations, social movements and NGOs based in Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Peru, Colombia and Bolivia, and hosted by the 'Pontao de Cultura', Polis. Our discussions focussed on issues ranging from solidarity economics, environmental preservation, cultural education for transformation and the building of sustainable communities.
    A five-day Ibero-Latin American Forum on Culture and Social Transformation is now about to begin, in the sprawling city of Tiradentes on the peripherary of Sao Paulo, co-organised by cultural organizations and social movements from the region, in collaboration with cultural networks from 11 countries within Latin and Central America. We will bring an update of this process and its various outcomes to Quebec.
    Finally, ABRA (the Brazilian Network of Arteducators) is launching a 5-day forum on Cultural Diversity and Arts for Transformation in Salvador, Bahia, tomorrow, in collaboration with cultural networks from Peru and Cuba, and Points of Culture from Bahia, Para and Minas Gerais. This second national Forum includes self-organised training workshops for activists, public school teachers, young people, children and their communities, and will dedicate its final two days to the July 2010 World Forum on Culture and Edsucation for Transformation. We will bring news and outcomes of this process too, to Montreal.
    In solidarity
    Dan Baron
    IDEA and the World Alliance for Arts Education
