The Hemispheric Institute is proud to announce that its founding director, Diana Taylor, will be giving an opening keynote address at the Panamerican Routes | Rutas panamericanas International Performing Arts Festival on February 28th, 2014. The festival will run through March 9, 2014 and will bring together Canadian, Indigenous, and Latin American artists from across the Americas including Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Mexico, the United States, and Canada. 

Aluna Theatre and Native Earth Performing Arts, in partnership with Brock University’s Department of Dramatic Arts, the University of Toronto’s Graduate Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies, and York University’s Graduate Program in Theatre and Performance Studies, present a conversatorio on performance and human rights in the Americas as part of the 2014 Panamerican Routes | Rutas panamericanas Festival. Our conversatorio brings artists, activists, and community leaders together with scholars in the social sciences and humanities for a series of urgent conversations with the public on the human rights issues addressed in the festival’s featured performances from across the Americas. This year’s theme is "How we live together."
