The Consulate General of the Republic of El Salvador

 and the Consulate General of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela

invite you to the Opening Exhibition Cocktail about the Renowned Salvadorian
Poet Roque Dalton

By the Director of the *Museo de la Palabra y la Imagen*

Carlos Enrique Consalvi “Santiago”

 Known in El Salvador as “Santiago,” Consalvi was born in Mérida, Venezuela,
and went to El Salvador in 1980 to join the revolutionary struggle,
establishing “Radio Venceremos,” a clandestine radio station, that became
the voice of the rebel guerrilla army, the FMLN, denouncing the massive
violation of human rights committed by the Salvadorian military.

After the war ended in a negotiated peace settlement, Consalvi turned his
attention to documenting the history and culture of El Salvador given that
so much of the historical record had been lost during the war. The Museo de
la Palabra y la Imagen, founded by Consalvi, has gathered an important
collection of archival material, supported traveling exhibitions, and
produced several documentary films.  The Museo’s exhibition dedicated to
Salvadoran poet and writer Roque Dalton (1935-1975) will be on display
during Consalvi’s visit at the newly inaugurated community center “Casa El
Salvador” in East Boston.

 When: Saturday October 8th, 6:00PM

Where: 46 Bennington Street, East Boston, Massachusetts 02128

Attendance is free
