Do I need to be latinx or speak spanish/portuguese to join?
No, you can still join! We are not exclusively only for latinxs students however, we are a safe space for UAL’s latinx and hispanic speaking community therefore you will be surrounded by this and will be exposed to spanglish/portuñol.
What kind of events do you do?
We hold a series of varied events as we are guided by the interests of each new incoming group of latinxs. We hold a monthly meet-up and a final year exhibition. In the past we have held panel discussions, movie/documentary evenings, dinners, dance classes, art viewings and club nights. This year our events will be adapted to follow covid-19 safety measures.
What is the membership fee for?
The membership fee goes towards the final year exhibition as a collective (Check out our previous exhibitions in the ‘Articles’ section).
As a member you will benefit from free/discounted event access and are secured a spot in the exhibition.
Through where do you communicate?
We mainly communicate through our whatsapp group (please email us to firstname.lastname@example.org join).
As well as a monthly newsletters and our instagram (latinxs.society).
