Hay Festival is staging events in two new locations in Latin America tomorrow (7 November). Hay Festival Forum Ayacucho in Peru and Hay Festival Forum Santiago in Chile take place on the eve of Hay Festival Arequipa in Peru (8-11 November).
Hay Festival Forum Ayacucho is based in and around the UNSCH Cultural Center, with a series of panel discussions featuring writers Ana Cristina Herreros, Víctor Tenorio, and Elizabeth Lino; social anthropologist Urbano Munoz; photographer Daniel Mordzinski; screenwriter Lalo Parra; architect Patricia Navarro Grau; and director of the Cultural Group El Tercer Ojo Felipe Lopez.
