On Oct.1 and 2, the State Center for Crime Prevention and Citizen Participation will organize a weekend of free music, graffiti, and theater.
Locally organized rock, rap, and hip-hop concerts, as well as talks, plays, sports demonstrations, forums, and graffiti will be offered free of charge this Friday and Saturday.
The event is called “Expresiones Juveniles” — Youth Expressions, and in order to emphasize the diversity of these expressions, Cepredey invited 10 local graffiti and mural artists from Mérida, Kanasín, Oxkutzcab, Ticul, and Progreso to create a 44-meter long mural.
It will be held in the facilities of the Cepredey, located at kilometer 37 of Merida’s west ring road — Anillo Periférico Poniente.
Although the event is specially directed to young people between the ages of 14 and 29, people of all ages are invited to participate in the activities and the creation of the collective mural.
Admission will be free of charge, with reduced seating capacity and in open spaces. For quota-controlled activities, access requires prior registration on the Center’s Facebook profile.
On Friday, Oct. 1, the event will begin at 1:00 p.m. and will continue until 7:00 p.m., while on Saturday, Oct. 2, it will be from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the Cepredey facilities.
