Repairing the Sense of "Community"

Back in 2010, the federal government convened all citizenship to participate as volunteers in the celebration of the bicentenial; It was the first time of making an event like this made up with volunteers; I decided to participate being at the parade and spectacle. Days before to the 15 of september of 2010, everyone was asking, whats up next? on what I can help?, reason that formed a very big community of volunteers "Por México Yo Sí". The time passed and the same questions stayed. At the half of 2011 caught my atention an adverstisement of the Museo de Arte Popular (Popular Art Museum), where they were inviting to participate in a contest of making Alebrijes monumentales, that are a magnificant giant crafts, and it was when i thougt that may be I could do something about it, help anyway, so it came to me the idea of helping on a way that I knew it was going to work on, that we could make without complications: Help to extend the calling of the museum but, this time not only for craftsmans, now for volunteers too to support in different ways, that could be the logistic operation of the event or even animation by the composition of artistical performances (thing that it is completely new for this kind of cultural events). At 2012, we helped again, with a better organization and development. This year, I want to overcome all the things done on past years.
What do I want to succes with this? I consider my self as a person that love  a lot his country, so much to give the life for it; only because of hear a huapango, a son jarocho, see the colours of its crafts and landscapes, feel odors and the tastes of its foods is something that make me feel something inside of me that I can not explain. Thats why, because of seeing the work that the popular art museum does, I decided to achieve something to make grow the culture on my country, that, without mention of the indirectly promotion of this kind of events, that helps all artcrafts in México and, the most important tag here: Create and repair a community sense over the people of my city. How? What a better way of achieve a meeting between people, that even it could be his or her neighbor and they didnt met each other, this for the actualy situation of our society precarious in a lot of things, than this kind of events, where you share and know different persons that may be you would not know never; all this, helping your city, your country in a very funny and original  way, that without any doubt, will leave you a personal development, even exercise.
Fot this project, I called for a group of volunteers willing on being at the organization of the 7° contest Parade of monumental alebrijes by the popular art museum, at the first of may, obtaining a very big answer of many people.
The organization it is structured by three groups: the artistic one, production, and logistic coordination. 1) Artistic: This year, at the same time of the calling, I thought correct open to everyone the selection of the topics to develp with the performance, obtaining 19 solicitudes, of where Me with other 5 people only chosen 3.
2) Production: Will be all the volunteers who take care about the work of the artistic segments.
3)Logistic: 3) Logistics: All matters related to the operation and overall logistics of organizing the parade, example is placing a volunteer after a certain number of meters to help people not passing  the limit to watch over the parade, volunteers to coordinate the pass of metrobus, volunteers to coordinate the parade output and its reception at the column of independence in Reforma Avenue.
Assays art segments are conducted independently, that is, not together, except for the two general tests to be performed. These will be based at the Institute of Youth, Folk Art Museum, Avenida Juarez and the Bosque de Chapultepec (1st section).
Along with volunteers, have responded to the call various organizations, including the Youth Institute of Mexico City, University Benefits, Volunteers Mexico, Takeshi Lin Studios, Dance Academy Blue, radio station "Son de la Negra" (12.90am), Satellite Voice and the Board of the Museum of Popular Art.
Name assigned to the organization for different reasons: Volunteers of the Folk Art Museum.
The event is traditionally the third weekend of October.
  In conclusion, in this way, achieve that society interacts with itself helping to solve one of the major problems afflicting these days, a divided society and indifferent, while we support the beautiful and great culture of our country.
