Qhipa Pacha Peruvian Andean and Amazonian Futurism. Manifesto

English language version of this post introducing the Peruvian Andean and Amazonian Futurism Manifesto

It started with the anthology Llaqtamasi, editeed by César Santivañez and published by Editorial Pandemonium.

Then both the editor and the publishers propose to go further and to made a collective that works  from and/or explore themes, motifs, characters, and traditions nourished by the cultural patrimony of the diverse indigenous peoples of Peru.

So here we are: I present you Qhipa Pacha and to understand more what is this all about, here is the manifesto.

 

 

Qhipa Pacha
Peruvian Andean and Amazonian Futurism
Manifesto

Qhipa Pacha is a collective that brings together Peruvian—and Peruvian-based—creative writers and artists of speculative fiction (science fiction, utopic and dystopic fiction,futurism, uchronies) whose works depart from and/or explore themes, motifs, characters, and traditions nourished by the cultural patrimony of the diverse indigenous peoples of Peru.
Our collective aims to recover the memory of our original peoples to build possible worlds that imagine and/or project—in a variety of formats and media— Peruvian Andean and Amazonian futurism beyond the influences of speculative fiction of cultures other than ours.

Qhipa Pacha takes its name from the Quechua word that designates a range of possibilities about the future. As such, it defends both progress and tradition and acknowledges scientific and technological dissemination by means of Peruvian Andean and Amazonian fiction as its main focus of interest.

Soon, the Qhipa Pacha collective will inaugurate its activities with a web portal with information about its members, creative works, publications, and projects in progress, including its first volume of Qhipa Pacha fiction.
