This is the website of the project "Cultures of Anti-Racism in Latin America" (CARLA). This was a three-year project (January 2020 to May 2023) awarded a £1million grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK) to explore how artists in Argentina, Brazil and Colombia address racial diversity in their work and how they use their art to challenge racism. The project was based in the University of Manchester but research teams focused on each country brought together senior and junior, UK-based and Latin American researchers in the social sciences and arts to work with a range of artists and performers to explore diverse practices, including for example Indigenous literatures, visual arts and cinema in Brazil, hip-hop music in Brazil and Colombia, Afro-Colombian art and an Indigenous-Black organisation that uses performance as a pedagogical tool, and street dance and commercial music forms alongside literature and political art in Argentina. Project researchers worked closely with artists and performers and collaborated with them in project workshops, which also had a public-facing component.

The website gives details of the project team members, in several categories:

  • Project Director and Co-Investigators based at the University of Manchester
  • Postdoctoral Researchers employed at the University of Manchester for the duration of the project
  • Co-Investigators based in Latin American universities and named in the research bid
