Cornett A229 from 6:30 pm – 7:50 pm

Featured Speaker:

Lina de Guevara

Lina was born in Chile and began her career as an actor, theatre director and teacher there. She came to Canada in 1976. Her personal experience with exile and immigration made her see theatre with new eyes, as an essential instrument for social and personal transformation. In 1988, she founded PUENTE THEATRE in Victoria BC, with the mandate to express through theatre the experiences of immigrants and diverse minorities. She retired as PUENTE’s Artistic Director in 2011. In this talk, Lina explores the relationship between Indigenous and non-indigenous peoples in Chile. She offers a comparison between Chile and Canada, based on her personal experiences.
