New this week: Migration & Sustainability Festivals
Daylight Savings has ended! Luckily, Montague TV is here to help you savor local festivities through the chilly, dark evenings ahead.
Footage from the 3rd Annual Migration Festival, a night of music, food and dance at the Great Falls Discovery Center. This event was sponsored in partnership between Montague Catholic Social Ministries (MCSM), the Guatemalan Art and Cultural Connection, the Massaschusetts Cultural Council Department of Conservation and Recreation, and the Discovery Center. Wondering how it all began? Lorna and Imre Kepes have a business buying Guatemalan artists' work and selling it throughout New England (The Kepeses have stated that the artists' usual market is of a seasonal, tourist-driven nature). After they shared this art with immigrant families who are a part of MCSM programming, many of whom are of Mayan descent, mothers from a playgroup collaborated with Lorna on a plan to start the first Migration Festival in 2016.
