Invite – recreating the Chilean mural (on cloth)

As part of the preparations for the Victor Jara festival ‘El Sueño Existe’ 2019, we will be creating, on a large cloth, a new version of the Leeds Chilean Mural : Y Habra Trabajo para Todos / And There Will be Work for All (picture of the mural attached – the other translation is into Welsh, which is important for the festival which is in Wales and recognises the importance of the Welsh language)

Briefly, the mural was originally painted by 3 young Chilean exiles in 1976, shortly after they arrived in Leeds. It was tiled over in the 80s and only rediscovered by chance in 2017.

It has been preserved and restored after a campaign by Chileans and supporters.BUT it is rather hidden on a wall in Leeds University student union and is difficult to visit or see.

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.
