‘We Touched the Sky’: the new online educational resource, freely available HERE, NOW

copy-Chile-40-Years-On-LogoSmall1Learn about the Chilean experience, via video interviews with exiled Chileans living in Britain. They tell their life stories, from their initial inspiration as Allende and Popular Unity came to power in 1970, the extraordinary achievements they were part of, and their personal experiences in the run-up to, and on the day of the military coup (Sept 11th 1973) and its aftermath.

Four Chileans with widely different experiences tell of the euphoria of being part of huge social advances, the repression they suffered, the solidarity they received, and their arrival in Britain to make new lives as exiles and activists.

In 1974, factory workers in Scotland refused to repair jet engines from the Chilean Air Force in protest against Pinochet’s brutal dictatorship. The workers never found out the scale of their impact. Until now.

The Showroom, Tuesday 18th September at 18.30.

Detention centres in Chile under Pinochet: free arpillera workshop and exhibition.

 

The exhibition of patchwork “arpilleras” and the  Arpillera  Workshop (Free)*, facilitated by Maria Alicia Salinas Farfan, will take place on Wednesday 5th September from 1.00-3.30pm at The Millennium Gallery (Please, register for the workshop) The arpilleras will be on display throughout the day.

Arpilleras are a traditional form of textile art using “burlap” (disused flour sacks made from cheap cotton) and embroidery techniques to tell a story. Arpilleras were made throughout the dictatorship to record events during the height of the repression. They were smuggled out of Chile and sold to support the families of the disappeared prisoners or those who were detained.
