The event took place this Tuesday in Guadalajara (Mexico).

The meeting, which was held on the occasion of the World Day for African Culture and People of African Descent, seeks to promote the artistic work in dance, film and theater of Afro women in Latin America.

The promoter of the meeting, Peruvian Alicia Olivares, told EFE news agency that this space is also a platform for artists to show their own stories without depending on the big production companies.

 

"It is a space to look at other possibilities, that the artists can show their work and that it can circulate in other countries, that they create labor bridges, it is not only to see the presentations, but to create a circuit where programmers can see what these artists do," said Olivares.

Mexican actress, playwright and manager Marisol Castillo, spoke of creating new scenes with Afro-Latin characters, which "is a way for other women to reflect themselves as courageous, empowered and brave people".

This was the first time that the Encounter was held in person, as it was previously held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
