to summon


Explanation:
Hector Suarez summoned/invited the community to participate in the new cultural spaces.

---------------------Evidently, we could say that he "had exhorted the people", but to summon or to invite is swifter and smoother.

have extended an invitation to the community to participate in the new cultural segments


Explanation:
The translation for "convocatoria" is "summons" or "a call for a meeting", but in this situation, "to extend an invitation" is more appropriate. Also if the context refers to a radio or TV show, the translation for "spacios" should be "segments" instead of "spaces".

make a call


Explanation:
Héctor Suárez made a call for the community to participate in the new cultural spaces.
I find that "to summon" is too formal, as it is commonly used in the context of formal meetings.
Best of luck!
