Celebrate International Women’s Day alongside six poets and writers from Bolivia, Chile, Mexico, and Spain.

International Women’s Day is a time to celebrate the courage and activism of ordinary women and to reflect on the progress made. This bilingual talk (Spanish-English) by Las Juanas aims to raise awareness of human rights, migration, exile, justice, and inclusion of women, based on personal experiences, visual, oral, musical, autobiographical, poetic, and narrative art.

The Hispano-American Women Writers on Memory Group, better known as Las Juanas, started a writing workshop in 2010. Through the continuity of their work and their artistic performances, they have managed to obtain a legitimate space in the literary world of the United Kingdom.

Their literary work germinates from their personal experiences of exile and migration. This is why they focus on creating inclusion and social justice using their art. They develop their own creative process, in addition to establishing ties with other related communities. They facilitate writing workshops with different themes and activities in Spanish and English.

The collective is made up of six women artists:

– MARIJO ALBA-SANCHEZ, SPAIN

-MARIA EUGENIA BRAVO CALDERARA, CHILE

-MABEL ENCINAS-SANCHEZ, MEXICO

-CONSUELO RIVERA-FUENTES, CHILE

-ISABEL ROS-LOPEZ, SPAIN

-DENISSE VARGAS BOLAÑOS, BOLIVIA
