A Conversation with Carlos Arredondo

May 14 @ 02:00 17:00

During the final week of our exhibition, we invite chilean exile CARLOS ARREDONDO to share his experiences as a musician, a refugee, an activist, an archivist and a member of the exile generation of 1973.

Carlos Arendondo first came to Britain as part of the 1973 exile from Chile, where a violent regime of state terror had taken hold via a bloody military coup. After arriving in Glasgow, Carlos formed the Chilean Folk Group and joined the solidarity movement with Chile in Scotland. Carlos’ activism continues to this day as he contributes to wider UK-Latin America solidarity with his music and experiences. He has also worked with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
