Cartoneras (Cardboard Publishing) is a unique grassroots Latin American publishing phenomenon, which offers alternative forms of community engagement, activism, and social change.  

The event will offer the chance to find out about this unique grassroots Latin American publishing phenomenon, and the Latin American community in London.  

A presentation by researchers Lucy Bell (University of Surrey) and María Soledad Montañez (University of London) will be followed by a "hands-on" workshop where the audience will be able to try their hand at making their own cardboard book.  

This collaborative event involves three different AHRC projects in England – the OWRI’s Cross Language Dynamics: Reshaping Community at the Institute of Modern Languages Research, University of London; Cartonera Publishing: Relations, meaning and community in movement – in collaboration with the Migration Museum, the Indoamerican Refugee and Migrant Organisation (IRMO), and Southwark Council. It is part of the Being Human festival, led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the British Academy
