This interesting project has young people at its heart. Using art in its many forms, the initiative seeks to engage this sector of the Latin American community to explore their capabilities and also to learn about and participate in creative projects, in activism and human rights, among other things.
The project is “Sin fronteras” (No Limits) and, as coordinator Tamya Bustamente says, it explores “themes and issues such as human rights, gender, feminism, identity, migration, and Latin American language and culture”.
The “Sin fronteras” programme is run by the Latin American Women’s Rights Service (LAWRS) and, free of charge, is aimed at young women between 14 and 21-years-old from the Latin American migrant community in the UK.
The programme was launched on 21 September last year and will continue until this November. Of course, participants can meet up whenever they want.
As Bustamente has said, sessions are in Spanish and take place every Saturday, in London, over the course of 10 weeks.
The topics focused on are: Art (painting, music, photography, documentary film-making, animation, social media and more); health, wellbeing, self-esteem, sports and mental health; human rights with a focus on young women, and activism through campaign creation; fun and educational activities including visits to museums, to the theatre and other places suitable for young people.
