Indigenous and Afro-Latina Women to Meet for Media Exchange


Mexico City, September 30 (teleSUR-RHC)-- Indigenous and Afro-Latina women media workers will come together in Mexico next month to exchange experiences on common challenges as minority women in the media industry.

The “Meeting of Indigenous and Afro-Descendant Communicators,” an array of workshops, projects and round tables,  is expected to bring together 80 female photographers, video producers, cinematographers and journalists in the Mexican state of Oaxaca between October 6th and 10th. 
      
It is the second time the event is organized with the intention to create a meeting space for Indigenous and Afro-Latina women to learn and exchange from each other’s experiences when standing at the intersections of gender, race and ethnicity in the media world.    

The meeting, which will include the participation of representative members of Alliance of Indigenous Women of Central America and Mexico, and from the Directory of Original Peoples and Indo-Afro-American relations of Argentina, will show participants that “we all fit, we can talk here about inter-culturality,” said Guadalupe Martínez, co-organizer of the event.
   
“If we review the situation Indigenous women in their communication groups, the challenge is to overcome that gap and achieve a platform female communicators can access, so that we can discuss the challenges, and from there build new discourses and concepts," Perez said.
