2018 Call for workshops and discussion proposals


The Quechua Alliance Meeting is a vibrant space for the exchange of ideas between Quechua speakers, community leaders, college students and professors who share an interest and passion for Quechua language and Andean culture. The event has the format of a one-day gathering with cultural activities, lectures, games, debates and dialogues. During the event we dedicate a section of the program to showcase engaging discussions or initiatives on Quechua teaching/learning/promotion. This 4th edition will be held at the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA) on November 17th, 2018.
