Building from the territory

 Centro de Convenciones (Salón Barahona Escenario Gales / Llwyfan Cymru)
Read more

The arduous shift towards caring for our environment, creating a dignified quality of life and reconstructing the communities that make this possible is always linked to the territory. What we need to know is about experiences of work in the territory, models of community practice connected with the land that can serve as examples for other places. For this purpose, we bring together the Spanish ecofeminist Yayo Herrero, the Cartagena activist Nilda Meléndez and the Ukrainian writer and activist Victoria Amelina, who will talk to Marta Ruiz.

Simultaneous interpreting from English to Spanish available

Two Caribbean cities and major players in the history of Colombia. Cities of contrasts, with inequalities, traditions and modernity; cities that have welcomed migrants and refugees, which have hosted legendary festivities, and that have also been the protagonists of works of literature. The Cartagena writers Margarita García Robayo (whose most recent books are La encomienda and El sonido de las olas) and Teresita Goyeneche (who presents her first work, La personalidad de los pelícanos), and the Barranquilla author Daniella Sánchez Russo (with her literary debut, Vigilia), talk about their home towns, their work and the stories that live in and are lived in by these cities. In conversation with David Lara.
