Celebrating Latin America in Bristol

A three-month celebration of Latin American culture in Bristol, organised by the University of Bristol, begins onThursday 7 March with a week of artistic events open to the public.

Semana Cultural (Cultural Week) will feature performances, talks and dance workshops from an eclectic selection of resident Bristol artists, writers, activists and academics.  These include singers in indigenous Andean languages, esteemed Argentine and Chilean poets who have considerable reputations in their home countries and are now writing from Bristol, and classical musicians interpreting Latin American musical styles such as tango, bossa nova and samba.

Further information about Semana Cultural and the research project which aims to strengthen cross-cultural links among Latin Americans in Bristol and stimulate a deeper awareness of Latin American culture within the city's already diverse population can be found via the University's press release.
