Description

Following the success of Meet My World London and Lima, we are delighted to be hosting Meet My World New York on the 30th November. Fred and Chris from Amantani will be presenting the awe inspiring films created by the young people from Amantani's projects in the Cusco region, Peru as they share their lessons on How to have fun without technology!

Amantani works to help children from marginalised Quechua families to access education, stimulating social development for Peru’s rural communities. Together with our friends at Andina restaurant in London, we have created Meet My World; a participatory film campaign developed by indigenous children from the Andes of Peru.

Perception of life in developing countries is distorted by not-for-profit organisations that fail to mention the positive aspects of life in the communities they support. This approach reinforces racial stereotypes, and comes at a cost to developing communities that isn’t being accounted for. We want to address this historical imbalance, moving away from pity and assumptions of cultural superiority, towards reciprocal connections based on respect and common understanding.

Our Meet My World project allows young people to define how they are portrayed. We simply help them to write and present their own films in which they can teach people all over the world the traditional skills and knowledge from their communities.

The films will be accompanied with insightful talks from Fred and Chris (directors of Amantani) as well as some delicious Peruvian inspired food and drinks.

Guest speakers from 'El Conocimiento Se Comparte' will also feature during the evening and share some of their wonderful work they do around Peru.

Tickets are limited so please don't delay to book your place!
