What is the Latin America festival?

Latin American Festival is an annual one-day event that focuses on Latin American culture and politics through music, dance, debates, and talks regarding local and global issues. The festival is run by volunteers and is organized in collaboration with local Latin American culture organizations in Aarhus, Aalborg, and Copenhagen.

When the festival is done the activist group will continue their work to focus on Latin America for the rest of the year by planning smaller events with the same political and cultural focus.

What is my role as an activist in the Latin American Festival 2020?

As an activist, you will be part of the planning and execution of the Latin American festival. You have the choice of working in one or more of the following 4 areas:

  1. Art and culture involving coordination of music, food, art, and other entertainment.
  2. Practical coordination involving preparing the program for the festival, providing technical support (mostly light and sound), and creating the overall structure of the festival. 
  3. PR and communication involving promoting the festival on social media and press contact
  4. Talks and politics involving arranging talks, debates, and fundraising for a charity project in Latin America.
