Symposium: Juana in a Million: Making Latin Americans Visible in London

7 June 2013

Time: 10:30am - 4:30pm
Venue: Southwark Playhouse

Organiser: Cathy McIlwaine

This symposium brings together the work of Mexican author-performer Vicky Araico Casas who has written a play called Juana in a Million which is a one-woman performance exploring true stories of Latin American migrants to the UK with academic research on the issue (the play was inspired by Cathy McIlwaine’s research on the Latin American Community in London). It aims to facilitate a larger audience for the play beyond the Latin American community itself and to explore the lessons learnt and the ways in which the arts and performance can interrelate with academic social science research.

The performance, lunch and refreshments will be provided as part of the ticket price of £7.
