Description

El Salvador made history in 2017 by becoming the first country in the world to ban metal mining. Join us for an afternoon of Spanish-language storytelling and Salvadoran food tasting as you learn more about the origins and development of this decade-long struggle. You’ll hear narrated and recorded testimonies from individuals directly affected by the process. Hosted by the Seven Sisters indoor market, the event will also raise awareness of the UK Latin Village’s own struggles to preserve the area’s Latin American cultural heritage.

ILAS is delighted to be working in partnership with Save Latin Village on this event.

This event is part of Being Human 2018, the UK’s only national festival of the humanities. Led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the British Academy, Being Human is a national forum for public engagement with humanities research.

The event is free, but spaces are limited so please reserve your spot by registering below.
