Acts of Listening Lab and Latin America Network on Internal Displacement LANID, invites you to:

“From the balso to the conuno”. A drawn conversation between Comunidad and Manuela Ochoa

27 October, 2-3pm (Colombia time)

Comunidad is a social leader from Tumaco, Colombia. His love for music, as well as his concern for the forced recruitment of young people, led him to create a cultural center. Comunidad was displaced and currently lives in Bogotá.

Manuela Ochoa is an artist and research assistant at the Acts of Listening Lab.

We ask ourselves: How can music and culture support and transform displaced communities to strengthen their identity? What does it mean to be a social leader in a country at war?

We will explore these questions through pictures, words, and music.

We invite attendees to have a sheet of paper and a pencil during the conversation. No skill or artistic experience is required to participate in this space
