McAllen Art Walk After Action Report

Date: Friday, January 7th 2011
Time: 6:00 - 9:00 PM
Location: N. Main St. McAllen, TX
Attendance: 10+ members

The Rio Grande Valley Zeitgeist Movement took to the streets this week in order to help spread awareness of the Zeitgeist Movement, the Venus Project and our upcoming screenings of Zeitgeist Moving Forward. This was our second month in a row at the McAllen Art Walk community event, and we were once again reaching more people who have known about the Zeitgeist Movement but were unaware of our local chapter.

During the course of the evening, we were able to talk to several individuals, including a store front owner and operator who was frustrated by the limitations and actions imposed on his business and the community by an oppressive and unresponsive local government. We also were able to talk to a library employee who lamented recent changes and cuts to community services and programs that promoted the arts and education aspect of a shared and engaged culture. We were also able to speak to assembled crowds who were perusing the artistic wares and listening to one of our members sing and perform songs and music of her own creation.

We were also able to distribute hundreds of flyers, tickets and other literature to the roving crowds. We are hopeful that these and other actions help draw our fellow citizens together to learn more about the world in which we live and how we can choose to make it better for all people. We hope you join us in our efforts, and we would like to see you at our future events. Thank you for your time and attention.
