Sangre Migrante* is a project dedicated to bringing Latin American stories to the forefront.
Motivated by the lack of Latin American representation in Australia’s mainstream media; Aimee Flores and Carolina De La Piedra began interviewing Sydney based Latin American’s in 2017 to share authentic stories from an ever-present community.
The Latin American diaspora in Australia has seen Latin American identities struggle to exist independently from another. It is important to acknowledge that our people are spread over 26 different countries between North America, Central America, the Carribean and South America. Millions of stories; different from the other.
Through storytelling, Sangre Migrante exists to listen, learn and embrace the various cultures and identities within Latin America; as well as highlight the differences of individual’s experiences as people of Latin American heritage navigating their way through the world.
Sangre Migrante acknowledges the traditional owners of the land we work and live on. We pay respect to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their ancestors and elders past, present and emerging.
