Third World Manager: Talk with Angelo Madson @ UC San Diego

        I hosted a telematic talk at the Visual Arts Department of University of California San Deigo with Amazon-based community organizer and independent radio host Angelo Madson about the making of my upcoming film Third World Manager.
        Angelo is an inspiring person that I had the pleasure to work with at the Amazonian city Belém do Pará (north of Brazil) in 2018.  He is the coordinator of the Web Radio Idade Mídia - Comunicação para Cidadania and is the main character of the movie that deals about the impact of entrepreneurial culture in social activism in Brazil.
        After the Q&A, Visual Arts Professor Brian Cross (aka B+) played some Brazilian tunes straight from his house in LA.

I have the pleasure to announce that together with Dorothy Howard, Verónica Uribe Del Águila, and Davide Carpano, we have won the UCSD Chancellor Interdisciplinary Collaboratories Grant Award which enables us to research the cultural infrastructures of creative labor through art and tech events, particularly the Maker Fair in San Mateo and the Burning Man Festival in the Nevada Desert. I'm honored to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Lilly Irani, Dr. Matilde Cordoba Azcarate, Dr. Charles Thorpe and Ricardo Dominguez in researching the role of ritual and protocol in the study of these events. Stay tuned!
