Capicu Culture & Wendy Angulo Productions Announce Strategic Partnership
Leading Cultural Production Companies Launch Collaboration To Advance Opportunities For Performing Poets, Artists Musicians.
Brooklyn, NY – January 5th, 2015 (For Immediate Release)
As it enters its 8th year, Capicu Culture- known for its People’s Open Mic series, online Radio Capicu broadcasts and The ‘School of Poetic Arts’ workshop series- has embarked upon a strategic partnership with Wendy Angulo Productions, the team behind the annual Canvas of Words: A Queens Arts & Poetry Festival, and the new Canvas of Words Poetry Tour which will feature established poets from across New York City including Advocate of Wordz, Peggy Robles-Alvarado, Bonafide Rojas, Roya Marsh, Ngoma Hill, Maria Rodriguez, Thomas Fucaloro, Meriam Slim Rodriguez, Jamaal St. John, Chilo Cajigas, Anthony Morales, and Rich Villar. The purpose of the partnership between these leaders of live event production is to share marketing strategies and resources that will expand the audience to multiple locations, enhance the overall scope of their cultural work, and provide more opportunities for working artists.
At the core of her mission statement Wendy Angulo states that she wishes to produce “collaborative events among established artists and emerging artists.” A woman of her word, the visionary Wendy collaborated with award-winning poet Peggy Robles-Alvarado to produce the artistic cornucopia that is the Canvas Of Words Festival, a series which represents the hard won fruits of our labor as creative arts emissaries. Canvas started in Queens and has quickly achieved far-reaching impact with a roster of world class performers similar to Capicu which started in Brooklyn and counts among our community artists from all over the country. Capicu Culture and Canvas of Words is a win/win situation, and in turn this a big win for New York City artists. –PaPo Swiggity Santiago, Co-Founder Capicu Culture.
Details of the partnership have not been announced at this time but will be rolled out in phases and will leverage competencies with integrated marketing support, as well as larger scale themed collaborations. In addition, we will seek to expand our digital offerings through Capicu’s existing live broadcast / on demand podcast.
“Since its creation Wendy Angulo Productions and Capicu Culture have built a strong relationship that lead to this strategic partnership. Partnerships like this are important to fortify our communities and provide artists, arts’ entrepreneurs and audiences with broadening opportunities “. – Wendy Angulo, CEO Wendy Angulo Productions
