Event Description

The Latin American Art and Literature Group, in partnership with CLAS, invites you to participate in an interactive workshop to promote the Quechua language. The workshop is open to UC Berkeley students and community members from the greater Bay Area. Everyone is welcome: educators, children, scholars, activists, and enthusiasts. No previous knowledge of Quechua is necessary.


The workshop will be facilitated by Florencia Orlandoni and Marial Quezada.
