Empowerment Through Art: Photography and Latin American Migrant Girls in London

8 Mar, 2013 at 12:00 am - 20 Apr, 2013 at 12:00 am

Empowerment Through Art is a documentary photographic exhibition developed by British-Mexican photographer Pablo Allison, whose photography often explores the concept of boundaries, both physical and social. The exhibition responds to London’s Latin American community which is vastly growing yet often overlooked. Pablo Allison’s project nurtures the voice of young Latin American women and explores their unique perception of London.

The project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and hosted by the University of Nottingham in partnership with the Latin American Women’s Rights Service. The exhibition is part of a larger research project ‘Women and Latin American Independence’ funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council at the University of Nottingham to investigate the role of women in the Latin American Wars of Independence two hundred years ago.
