    Introducing IFLAC Delegates in South America

    Text: Solveig Hansen

    The belief in literature as a tool for promoting social change and a Culture of Peace is shared by the many socially engaged writers and poets who have joined IFLAC. The IFLAC group in South America, called PAZIFLAC, is an especially dedicated one, with their own forum.

    PAZIFLAC is the most active of the branches in the IFLAC network. This is largely thanks to María Cristina Azcona and Susana Roberts, IFLAC Director and Vice Director for Argentina and South America, who have done a great job in promoting and developing IFLAC in their region.

    María Cristina made the video below with pictures of some of the PAZIFLAC members. The accompanying song, Constructores de Paz (Builders of Peace), is written by Héctor José Corredor Cuervo and put to music and sung by Henry Angarita, both from Columbia. This beautiful and poignant canción has become the IFLAC hymn in South America.

    Books, poetry contests for children and lectures on literature as a vehicle for peace are just a few of the activities that PAZIFLAC members have been involved in. Read the blog posts covering some of their work.
