Autochthonous Imagination Ateliers
From September to December, a series of workshops called Ateliers will take place at the UZH. This format will work as a diverse space in which indigenous societies, indigenous artists, and intellectuals from Latin America come together to listen about traditional knowledge, and their work in the territories to learn more about myths, stories, and how they deal with extractive practices, violence, and the destruction of nature.
