Living in Diaspora

Migration and diaspora topics crosses us to all those who from different parts of the world have made UK our home and English our second language. Some writers and non-binary people have reflected on migration, borders, territories and displacement, leaving in books, arts and creative resources some ideas to give a voice to own narratives. The Feminist Library Spanish Book Club invites you to the “Living in Diaspora Zine workshop” to share creatively our own narrative as migrant people in the Spanish-speaking diaspora and other native languages in the UK.

The Feminist Library Spanish Book Club is a safe space for feminists, non-binary people and queers who have Spanish as mother tongue. In the Club we talk about our work and personal experiences, as well we read and comment books and writers’ creations Latin American and Spanish thinkers, artists and activists who contribute from a feminist perspective. The Spanish reading club meets on the last Tuesday of each month at the Feminist Library.

Viviendo en la Diáspora. Taller de Fanzines por el Club de Lectura de Feminist Library

La migración y la diáspora son temas que nos cruzan a todos los que hemos venido de diversas partes del mundo y hacemos de UK nuestro hogar y del inglés nuestra segunda lengua. Algunxs escritorxs y gente no binaria han reflexionado en sus obras y creaciones sobre la migración, las fronteras, los territorios y los desplazamientos, dejando un legado para darle más fuerza a nuestra voz y narrativas propias. El Club de Lectura en Español de Feminist Library invita al taller de fanzines “Viviendo en la Diáspora” para compartir de manera creativa nuestras experiencias dentro de la diáspora hispanoparlante y-o hablantes de otras lenguas nativas. El Club de Lectura en Español de la Feminist Library es un espacio seguro para feministas, personas no binarias y queers que tienen el español como lengua madre, y que muestran un interés para platicar de los trabajos y experiencias personales, leer y comentar textos y creaciones que escritoras, pensadoras, artistas y activistas latinoamericanas y españolas aportan desde una perspectiva feminista. El Club de Lectura en Español se reúne los últimos miércoles de cada mes en las instalaciones de la Feminist Library.
