Borders Visualized

BY KERRY DOYLE
@ VOL 11 ON OCT 10, 2015

“The border is a very difficult place to describe. Anything I say about it, I'll also say the exact opposite about it.”

In Borders Visualized from PechaKucha Night El Paso’s 11th Volume, speaker Kerry Doyle presents the mission of the Rubin Center for Visual Arts at UTEP with a selection of work from exhibitions over the first 10 years.  Borders are meant to divide. As border tensions rise, artists –both performance and visual– have been creating works to represent the relationship between the bordering cities of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez. The Rubin Center now has a decade’s worth of stories to show and tell.

In this presentation Chad Becker discusses the efforts of Medic Samiratan, which was established to offer medical support in Haiti for mission teams and the residents they served following the catastrophic earthquake in January 2010 which devastated the already impoverished Third World country.  Evolving from its founding objective, Medic Samaritan now enters into healthcare concentrated endeavors that facilitate access to shelter, education, and clean water within the rural mountainous communities of Beloc, Camatin, and Decouze, Haiti. The Medic Samaritan SEWing Sustainability model (Shelter, Education/Engagement, Water), focuses on empowering Haitians through projects that promote long-term, community health development and sustainability.
