Feelings: Creative conflicts around immigration Past Event

Presented by Carlos Vazquez

This talk is the result of a two-year process to understand immigration, decolonisation and gender through the lens of a Latin American designer. It explores different paths used to develop an identity and positionality towards this topic. The final graphic result explores words, phrases and thoughts through different elements and their symbolic connection with Country. The process of conflict also provides spaces to generate workshops like ‘Make identity through play.’ This talk explores in a creative way some of the thoughts and feelings as the result of the displacement of people from their original land.
