Following the success of Meet My World London and Lima, we are delighted to be hosting Meet My World New York on the 30th November. Fred and Chris from Amantani will be presenting the awe-inspiring films created by the young people from Amantani's projects in the Cusco regionPeru as they share their lessons on 'How to Have Fun Without Technology'! During the evening, the films will be accompanied by insightful talks from Fred and Chris (directors of Amantani) as well as some delicious Peruvian-inspired food and drink.

Amantani works to help children from marginalised Quechua families to access education, stimulating social development for Peru’s rural communities.  Together with our friends at Andina London, we have created Meet My World; a participatory film campaign developed by indigenous children from the Andes of Peru.

Perception of life in other countries can be distorted by not-for-profit organisations that fail to mention the positive aspects of life in the communities they support. This approach reinforces racial stereotypes, and comes at a cost to societies that isn’t being accounted for. We want to address this historical imbalance, moving away from pity and assumptions of cultural superiority, towards reciprocal connections based on respect and common understanding. 

Our Meet My World project allows young people to define how they are portrayed. We simply enable them to write and present their own films in which they can teach people all over the world the traditional skills and knowledge from their communities.

The children have already made a name for themselves as charismatic and knowledgeable teachers. In 2014, they made a series of films to teach people traditional culinary skills from their communities. In doing so, they were able to share their knowledge with more than 50,000 people in over 110 countries. The latest series of films were launched at a sold-out screenings in London, Lima and Berlin and we can't wait to take the films to New York!

Guest speakers from 'El Conocimiento Se Comparte' will also feature during the evening to share some of their wonderful work in Peru. On the back of 22 years teaching experience in California, these three siblings from Peru are on a mission to train fellow teachers from disadvantaged regions of their home country. 

Tickets are limited so please don't delay to book your place!
