2010 Sister Cities International Annual Conference

Date/Time

July 29 - 31, 2010

Location

Albuquerque, New Mexico

About the Event Welcome to the 2010 Sister Cities International Annual Conference.

As I think of this year's theme, Community Diplomacy: Empowering Partnerships and Programs, I think of all the remarkable work done by average people every day to bridge the gap of cultural understanding worldwide. People like sister cities members in small towns and big cities who have opened their homes, wallets and minds to creating long-lasting peace through partnerships.

This year's Annual Conference aims to engage Sister Cities International stakeholders like never before through diverse educational sessions, networking opportunities and enriching cultural experiences, all brought to us by the gracious people of Albuquerque.

I invite all attendees to answer the call to action: Come help us shape what it means to be a citizen diplomat. Come be part of the dialogue. Come help Sister Cities International create empowering partnerships and programs.

We look forward to hosting you!

Best,

Patrick Madden
President & CEO

Application for Cultural Exchange International Pilot Program

Informational Workshop Monday, June 8, 2009 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Additional Info
About

Los Angeles - The City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) launched the second round of its Cultural Exchange International (CEI) Pilot Program and released the second set of guidelines for new applicants.  CEI is a two-year fellowship program intended to enhance Los Angeles as a national and international center for the arts and foster cultural understandings through the expansion of networks and the exchange of knowledge between creative professionals.

CEI provides fellowship support to creative professionals (artists, arts administrators, arts/cultural educators and scholars, curators, presenters, creative entrepreneurs, cultural innovators, and cultural experts) traveling abroad for intensive residencies
(two weeks to three months), or creative professionals coming to Los Angeles for intensive residencies (also two weeks to three months), who have planned collaborative relationships with Los Angeles organizations to host their residencies.  The program has been designed to support individual professionals or small groups (with a limit of three to four people per group).

In the first round of fellowship awards, 7 creative professionals, often leading teams of artists; 1 Los Angeles for-profit company; and 4 Los Angeles non-profit organizations were recommended for support with $88,000 for fellowship projects in Bolivia, Brazil, Cuba, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Poland, and Rwanda.  All of these projects will also culminate in free public presentations in Los Angeles.  An additional $12,950 is being awarded to three of these projects, which take place in Latin America, by the National Performance Network (NPN) for a total of $100,950 in funding support.

The two-year pilot program was made possible with seed funding from the City of
Los Angeles and the Durfee Foundation.  The Durfee Foundation’s funding supports
Los Angeles artists traveling abroad.  Funding from the National Performance Network focuses on exchanges between Los Angeles and Latin America and the Caribbean. 

To date, several respected sponsor-partners have enlarged the pool of funds committed over the two-year pilot project to more than $550,000.  For CEI’s second round of fellowships, partnerships have been extended to include the Foundation for International Cultural Activities (SICA) in the Netherlands, the Sacatar Foundation in Brazil, and the Trust for Mutual Understanding, which supports exchange between the United States and Russia, as well as Central and Eastern Europe. 

Local creative professionals and businesses, and non-profit organizations are encouraged to find DCA’s CEI Program Grant Guidelines online at: 

http://www.culturela.org/grants/CEI/CEI_Application_052109_wforms.pdf

The postmarked deadline for submission of all application materials is Friday, June 26, 2009.  An informational workshop will be held at DCA’s main office at 201 North Figueroa Street, Suite 1400, Los Angeles, CA  90012, on Monday, June 8, 2009 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.  For more information about the CEI Pilot Program guidelines and application, please contact Joe Smoke, DCA’s Cultural Grant Program Director at:

Bombay Summer World Premiere

About

The world premiere of "Bombay Summer" at the 7th Annual Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles

Date/Time April 25th at 9 pm
Location Arclight theater in Hollywood
Additional Info

The 7th annual Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) takes place on April 21-26 at the ArcLight Hollywood, the elegant, state-of-the-art facility at Sunset and Vine in Hollywood.

Due to the success of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, excitement and interest in India and its films are at an all time high. Come experience Indian filmmaking and music like you've never seen it before at the World Premiere of BOMBAY SUMMMER presented by IFFLA and Los Angeles Mumbai Sister City.

Geeta, a young woman, tries to balance a thriving career and the needs of her family. Jaidev, an up-and-coming writer, struggles to establish independence from his wealthy family though he still relies on them financially. Madan, a commercial artist, is forced to supplement his sporadic income with risky illegal ventures to make ends meet. Through a strange twist of fate and circumstance, these three characters form a fast friendship in the booming metropolis of Mumbai. Their relationship promises to open eyes, hearts and doors on the road to self-discovery. Yet, the bonds of friendship are often fleeting when survival is priority number one.

Director Joseph Mathew Varghese made the transition from the world of finance to documentary filmmaking and now comes his narrative feature film debut, BOMBAY SUMMER. The collection of young talent in this film promises a bright future for Indian independent film. Additional information on the film can be found here.

Tickets can be purchased at the Arclight Hollywood box office or online at www.arclightcinemas.com.

Make sure to check out the IFFLA website, www.indianfilmfestival.org, for a complete list and schedule of all the films playing at this year's festival.

Lansing  Regional Sister Cities Commission

Dear U.S. Sister Cities with Africa Partnerships;

We are proud to be the hosts of the 17th U.S. Africa Sister Cities Conference.   We are planning a very comprehensive conference full of information, pertinent issues, excellent speakers, entertainment and opportunities to share ideas.  We would like every U.S. city with an African sister city to be represented.  One goal is to strengthen our partnerships and reflect on each other’s successes.  Another is to get clarity on U.S. policy on Africa.  In addition, we want to work together to  help revitalize those relationships that have not been as active, as you would like.  Africa is a very important part of the world stage.  The African investment environment has improved substantially in recent years and foreign investment in the continent has grown.  Our citizen diplomacy, as sister cities, is critical during this era of great development potential.  Please come to Lansing in July so we can focus on our theme together:  U.S. Africa Relations:  Building Alliances.

Registration materials will be sent to you soon.  Put the dates on your calendar and start planning now to attend.  If you have stories to share, please let us know. Feel free to contact us at masonb@msu.edu.
