104:A Arts & Lectures: A PHOTOGRAPHER’S YEAR WITH A HOMELESS COUPLE
 
Presenter(s): Erik Castro
 
Photojournalist Erik Castro spent 14 months photographing the daily lives of a homeless couple he met living under Highway 101 during the winter of 2017. The city had recently declared a homeless emergency when Castro documented the couple through a tumultuous year that ended in a bitter breakup. He discusses what he witnessed and the stories behind many of the photos taken for this project. “It felt cruel to complain about suffering people living on those underpasses as being a nuisance, so I decided to create photography that shows what homelessness feels like from the person experiencing it.” To read the story published in The Press Democrat online, BROKEN: A Year in The Life of Steve & Michelle, go to this link: www.srhomelessproject.com. To join the Zoom webinar, click: https://cccconfer.zoom.us/j/356294367 (Webinar ID: 356 294 367)

108:A Arts & Lectures: THE DREAM OF A LANGUAGE BRIDGE: ESPERANTO IN THE WORLD TODAY
 
Presenter(s): Dr. Orlando Raola
 
The need for language bridges has been a constant presence since the beginning of interacting with members of different tribes and of different nations. The solutions used for this communication problem have taken different forms through the centuries. Nowadays, some think that the English language can rightfully claim to be the long-sought bridge. However, there are many reasons why this isn’t so, and more importantly, why it should not be so. In the search for a more efficient, just, and egalitarian bridge, the idea of a planned or constructed language has been around for the longest time. Of the myriad of projects proposed, only one has achieved all the evolutionary steps to become a fully functional and living language: the International Language Esperanto. In this lecture, the highlights of 130 years of Esperanto development are presented together with a perspective of the new possibilities opened by the omnipresent World Wide Web and with some serious reflection about the future of human communication. To join the Zoom webinar, click: https://cccconfer.zoom.us/j/356294367 (Webinar ID: 356 294 367)
