‘We Touched the Sky’: the new online educational resource, freely available here, shortly

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.

The University of Warwick is pleased to invite you to a special evening of poetry and film to mark the launch of the project ‘Chilean Exiles and World University Service (WUS)’  on 25 May 2017 at 18.00 in the Warwick Arts Centre cinema.
