UCL - Institute of the Americas (UCL-IA) warmly invites you to a short play entitled 'Razones por las que luchar', created and performed by 'Latin American Girls Stand Up!', a group of young Latin American women migrants resident in London, directed by Amy Rosario of the Latin American Women's Rights Service.
The play is one of the outcomes of a partnership between LAWRS and the University of Nottingham on an outreach project funded by the AHRC. The original research focused on the role of women in the Wars on Independence in Latin America and the girls have worked around this theme in creating their play.
Catherine Davies will present the AHRC project and Carolina Velasquez will briefly introduce the valuable work of LAWRS. After the play there will be a discussion about the experience of working on these projects
The event will also preview Pablo Allison's exhibition of his portraits of the girls and the girls' own work currently showing at the Southwark Council premises in Tooley Street.
Refreshments will be served. Attendance is free of charge but registration is required. Seating space is limited, so early registration is recommended to avoid disappointment.
