Dan Baron Cohen presents his most recent activist-research from the five-year project 'Rivers of Meeting'. Based in the riverside urban excluded community of Cabelo Seco, the youth-led project nurtures artist-leaders through development of afro-contemporary dance, musical performance of their Amazonian identities and intercultural collaboration, with the courage to question the industrialization of the Brazilian Amazon. Of interest to Latin Americanists and people interested in the Amazon, pedagogies of transformation, literature and cultural anthropology.
