WOMEN OF INFLUENCE -SHORT FILMS & MANIFESTO FOR CHANGE
Saturday 29 April 2023, 12.30-3.00pm
Room 0.01, The Enterprise Centre, UEA.
FREE - NO BOOKING NECESSARY
Five powerful short films and a Manifesto for Change produced in 2022-2023 by a group of young Asháninka women leaders from the Peruvian region of Junín.
Women play a fundamental role in the preservation of biodiversity and ancestral knowledge, and the management and defence of Amazonian land and water. However, these contributions often go unrecognised. The Women of Influence project - a partnership between UEA (Norwich, UK), PUCP (Lima, Peru), ONAMIAP and OMIAASEC - has worked alongside these young Asháninka women, to understand, support and make visible the work that these women have undertaken as community members and future leaders.
Trigger warning: These films contain scenes of environmental degradation.
