Labor Day I plan to attend The Albuquerque Cultural Conference which focuseson "Dreaming Big: Cultural Activism, Writing, Education, and the Arts in the New Century."
The conference plans to have panels on "alternative education, writing for survival, cultural memory, investigative journalism, Southwest arts and culture, architecture and society, creating a people’s almanac, the work of poets and artists for peace and justice, and new creative forms for changing times. Workshops in writing for peace and justice, creative non-fiction, poetry, and recapturing memory in writing will be offered the last day of the conference." Readings
and get-to-gethers will happen in the evening.
