Join us for an evening of activities evoking Latin American Utopias from the 1970s. Consisting of an exhibition tour around ‘Utopia and Dystopia: Dreaming the Future’ displaying ephemera documenting Latin American political and socioeconomic utopian ideas and dystopian developments, the event will also feature screenings of digitised images and short clips, food tasting and music.
During the event, you will be able to chat with members of UK solidarity movements working with Latin American countries (Chile, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Venezuela to name a few) about the political utopias that emerged from these countries since the 1970s and which have inspired many abroad.
Limited places. Booking essential.
This event is part of the Being Human festival - the UK’s only national festival of the humanities. As our festival events are free, not everyone who asks for tickets come to our events. To make sure we have a full house, we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first-come-first- served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
