Event description
Learn to make your own cartonera book and share ideas about arts-based action for sustainable community-building in the UK and Latin America

About this Event

*The second of four workshops in the London Cartonera Festival*

This workshop will be facilitated by La Cartonera from Cuernavaca, Mexico, and will focus on their recent work on the reconstruction of homes and local histories in the indigenous community of Xoxocotla (Morelos, Mexico).

The workshop will begin with a presentation by the cartonera publishers Nayeli Sánchez and Dany Hurpin, followed by a practical book-making session where you will get to bind a collection of photographs and some testimonies from the Xoxocotla commemorative building project. This is a unique opportunity to learn to make your own cartonera book, and share your own ideas about arts-based action for sustainable community-building in the UK and Latin America.
