Festival of Latin American Anti-Racist and Decolonial Art

Festival of Decolonial and Anti-Racist Art - A Documentary filmed and edited by Jami L. Bennet and Shawn Stephen.


On Saturday 23 April 2022, we held a Festival of Latin American Anti-Racist and Decolonial Art at Contact Theatre in Manchester. The event launched a major online exhibition that has emerged from the CARLA (Cultures of Anti-racism in Latin America) project at University of Manchester. It also showcased the work of some of the Latin American artists with whom we have been collaborating over the past two years: creators of colour at the forefront of antiracist struggles in their countries. The festival showcased performances and films by the following artists. Head to our website to see more.
