FiveCurrents Produces Puebla Cinco De Mayo Spectacular!

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Puebla Cathedral

On May 5, 2012, FiveCurrents produced the 150th Cinco de Mayo Celebration: "Puebla: Orgullo de Mexico." The commemorative celebration was developed for broadcast to increase awareness of Puebla as a tourist destination, and to honor the rich history and bravery of the people of Puebla. The 150th Cinco de Mayo celebration was broadcast in 21 countries to more than 300 million people worldwide.

The special was presented in three acts focusing on The Spirit of the Land, The Spirit of the People, and The Spirit of Puebla. Incorporating Mexican and indigenous history and folklore, FiveCurrents used Fort Guadalupe, where the Battle of Puebla was fought in 1862, as the backdrop for the broadcast. Capitalizing on the historic site and rich Poblano history in each act, FiveCurrents created a storyline that included a re-creation of the Battle of Puebla, a tender retelling of the Aztec legend of Popo and Ixta, and even built a life-sized, full color representation of the Puebla Cathedral covered in humanity, with more than a hundred aerial
Performers.

The president of Mexico and the governor of Puebla made moving remarks, and the show ended in a huge mast-cast number dedicated to peace, and the future of Puebla. Headline talent included Latin superstars Marc Anthony, Chayanne, Espinoza Paz, Pepe Aguilar, Maria
Jose and Lila Downs.

CGI America Creates US Jobs

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

On the final day of the Clinton Global Initiative’s CGI America meeting, President Clinton announced that commitments launched during the event will, when fully funded and implemented, create or fill more than 124,000 jobs, provide more than 364,000 people with access to job training, and support entrepreneurs with $265 million in investments or loans.

“At CGI America we have announced 51 commitments that will improve the lives of 2.7 million people in the United States,” President Clinton said. “The individuals and organizations that have launched new programs this week are proving that we can create jobs and foster economic growth here in America. I hope that their efforts will inspire others to take action to revitalize their own communities.”

CGI America is the first Clinton Global Initiative event focusing exclusively on the U.S. More than 750 leaders from businesses, nonprofits, and all levels of government are participating in the event, which aims to generate new ideas for spurring economic growth and highlight existing programs which can be replicated and scaled.

At all CGI meetings, participants make Commitments to Action. A commitment is not a financial contribution to CGI; rather, it is a plan that outlines the steps the organization or individual will take to launch a program that improves lives. At CGI America, most commitments have focused on addressing the challenges of job creation and economic growth in the U.S.

Details on all CGI America commitments can be found at http://www.CGIAmerica.org.
