    I am coordinating a cultural event, Toner på tværs which means Inter-cultural voices, a unique kind of concert with performers from people of different nationalities with songs, music with the use of different instruments. community singing, dance and reading of poetry. This event is for two hours and will be followed by International Buffet with food representing different mad cultures. All those who perform and all those who contribute food to the International Buffet do it freely, , without being paid for...There will be a collection aimed to support a certain charitable organization. This year we hand in the collected amount from the day's activity to Red Barnet in Denmark. Toner på tværs is on the 29th of September from 16.00 to 21.00 in Kolding.

    Today is Bloomsday, a commemoration and celebration of the life of Irish writer James Joyce during which the events of his novel Ulysses (which is set on 16 June 1904) are relived.

    It is observed annually on 16 June in Dublin and elsewhere. Joyce chose the date as it was the date of his first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle; they walked to the Dublin suburb of Ringsend. The name derives from Leopold Bloom, the protagonist of Ulysses.

    The English portmanteau word Bloomsday is usually used in Irish as well, though some purist publications call it Lá Bloom.

    The Shared Poetry Project — inspired by this John Merrow blog entry:

    http://takingnote.learningmatters.tv/?p=5454 — we'd like to invite public school students to film community members reciting lines of poetry, then edit the readings into a video for the Learning Matters YouTube channel. This exciting project provides students the opportunity to develop or strengthen real-world skills of teamwork, quality control, and production. It also can introduce the 80% of Americans who do not have school-aged children to the remarkable abilities of our youth. Not to mention exposes them to some great poetry!

    Project Guidelines may be found here: http://bit.ly/xp2Jgz

    A great project for National Poetry Month!
