26 Jan Peru: Strengthening Capacity Among the Quechua Communicators’ Network in the Ayacucho Region, Chirapaq
Centro de Culturas Indígenas del Perú, Peru
In Peru, indigenous peoples experience marginalisation and discrimination that prevents their social inclusion and participation as citizens. Their rights and identity are not adequately respected in the Peruvian media system. The Chirapaq Centre for Indigenous Cultures in Ayacucho wants to address this situation by training 50 indigenous communicators, both women and men, in radio production skills. The training will use an approach grounded in communication rights and indigenous rights. The communicators will then be better able to make use of the potential of local radio stations to increase awareness and knowledge of indigenous peoples’ rights among both general public opinion and the indigenous people themselves.
