An Afternoon with Colectivo LASTESIS

13 Nov 2023

Chilean feminist collective, LASTESIS.

On 13 November 2023, UCC SPLAS together with LASC, UCC EDI, CASiLaC and the Violence, Conflict and Gender research cluster hosted the Chilean performance collective, LASTESIS. In ‘An Afternoon with Colectivo LASTESIS’, we held a one-hour conversation with the group, which was available to attend online or in person, and which allowed the audience from UCC and beyond to learn more about the origins of the group and the motivations for their activism. The second part of the event, an in-person workshop, was led by Colectivo LASTESIS and during this time they shared their processes in engaging with complex theories and developing performances in reaction to gender-based violence. The workshop was attended by undergraduate and postgraduate students of UCC, UCC staff and many members of the general public.
