We congratulate Patricia Ariza on her appointment as Colombia's Minister of Culture.
"Theatre director and playwright Patricia Ariza has been appointed by President-elect Gustavo Petro as the new Minister of Culture. She is a feminist artist who has worked for years with marginalised communities, who has been a militant on the left, who is close to movements of independent artists, and who was one of the pioneers of what in Colombia was called the New Theatre."
