Promoting Awareness through the Arts

There are many ways that you can help educate your community about the impact of U.S. policy towards Latin America by using different artistic media.

 Here are a few ideas:

  • Film Festival. Ask your local movie theater to sponsor a series of films with a Latin America/human rights theme, or plan your own film festival on campus.
  • Thematic Meals. Host a dinner featuring dishes from Latin American countries, either by preparing food yourself or gathering at a local restaurant. Have a theme, play international music, and decorate—and then hand out information, or give a short talk about the issues you are working on.
  • Art Shows. Ask art students or local artists to create and donate works with a peace and justice/Latin America theme for exhibition and/or raffle.
