    Hi, I’m a family supporter from a Ngo in Brixton that works with latinamerican families. The workshop looks very interesting so I was wondering that if you think I also can participate even thought is not my location or community?

      You’d be very welcome, though it will certainly be quite a trip for you. I will email you separately.
