Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Cartoneras are pieces of waste cardboard turned into colourful books by grassroots Latin American publishers. It is a phenomenon born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as a collaboration between writers, publishers, and waste-pickers, in the wake of the 2001 economic crisis. Learn how to make them from South American activists at these workshops. Each workshop had a different theme from housing and social justice to sustainable communities. 

Workshops take place at Garden Halls, 1 Cartwright Gardens, WC1H 9EN Sep 17-19 and at The Story Garden at The British Library Sep 20.
