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.

2017

In 1976, a group of Chileans in exile painted a mural on a student common room wall in the Leeds University Union building. Later hidden behind a temporary ceiling and kitchen wall, the mural was finally uncovered in 2017.

To mark the restoration and interpretation of the mural, this symposium will examine the different visual and political contexts within which we can situate the LUU Chilean mural. Invited academics and arts professionals will present a series of examples which explore the politics and poetics of public art, politics and murals in Chilean, South American and other global contexts.

Se nos van Bernardo, Claudia y Constanza…

P1070903
Han llegado a Sheffield estudiantes de la larga y angosta y se han ido de vuelta con la tangible evidencia profesional de sus pasos por la U y dejado atrás su contribución al creciente tejido comunitario.Mucho ha cambiado desde el momento que Herman Elgueta nos contactó desde Temuco a cerca de su próxima venida a estudiar a Sheffield. Allí se comenzaba a  gestar el proyecto que articula bienvenidas, apoyo, y más apoyo, y despedidas. Proyecto que también sustenta a la distancia la identidad chilena-sheffeliana que persigue a quienes han tenido la fortuna de acariciar la experiencia. Experiencia que no nació de la nada.

“We Touched the Sky”: a new online educational resource about the Chilean experience.

P1070834The Chile40YearsOn online course ‘We Touched the Sky’ was launched on Saturday 20th August at the El Sueño Existe Festival, Machynlleth, Wales.

This is a new educational resource designed to learn online about the Chilean experience, via interviews with exiled Chileans living in Britain. They tell their life stories, from the initial inspiration as Allende and Popular Unity came to power in 1970, the extraordinary achievement that 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 repression they suffered, the solidarity both direct and indirect they received, and their arrival here in Britain to make new lives as exiles and activists.
