Cartoneras in London

23 November, 2019, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Cartoneras (Cardboard Publishing) is a unique grassroots Latin American publishing phenomenon, which offers alternative forms of community engagement, activism, and social change. Join in this workshop at the wonderful Migration Museum to learn about this empowering cultural phenomenon and see how the model is used to engage young Latin Americans in South London.

A presentation by researchers Lucy Bell (University of Surrey) and María Soledad Montañez (School of Advanced Study) will be followed by a hands-on workshop where you can try your hand at making your own cardboard book. By the end of the day you will discover how storytelling, imagination and creativity can transform community engagement, connecting and inspiring people from many different walks of life.

The event will begin at 15.00, but doors opens from 14.00 for those interested in exploring the museum’s exhibition.

(This collaborative event involves two Arts and Humanities Research Council projects – Cross Language Dynamics: Reshaping Community and Cartonera Publishing: Relations, Meaning and Community in Movement).

Migration Museum, Southwark Council, Indoamerican Refugee and Migrant Organisation
