This and other Headlands Talks in 1991 investigated the theme of community, specifically economic, cultural, and social interactions. This tape is a recording of Guillermo Gomez Peña and Carrie Mae Weems entitled, Who Is Our Community? New Cultural Models in a Multicultural Society. This was a multi-media performance and lecture exploring the development of border culture, its images, meaning and strategies for subverting border cultural myths. How do we expand our idea of community to acknowledge difference and include others? Guillermo Gomez Pena presents a multi-media performance/lecture exploring the development of border culture, its images, meaning and strategies for subverting border culture myths. Cultural activist Carrie Mae Weems, whose interests are in cultural studies, history and folklore, will discuss her explorations of identity, cultural and race through her work with photography and text. She looks at myths and folklore to explore how we adapt aspects of history and culture in order to live and survive. She has recently joined the faculty at California College of Arts and Crafts. Guillermo Gomez Peña actively promotes dialogue between Mexico and the U.S. and contributes to High Performance, La Jornada in Mexico, coedits La Linea Quebrada, in San Diego and has a regular program on National Public Radio’s Crossroads. (from 1991)
