Feminist movement through artistic murals Live Tour

Buenos Aires, Argentina Art, Culture, Feminism, LGBT+, Music
  • Languages English, Spanish, Portuguese
  • Duration 60 Minutes

Buenos Aires is a large city, with 48 neighborhoods, each one has its own essence, its particular characteristic.

Walk with me through an ‘‘ off the beaten track ’’ area with a feminist theme, depicted by street murals.

I have prepared this tour to make you feel that you are right there with me, feeling the area and the stories, getting to know more about the past and present of feminist movement in my country and the global impact that it has.

We will begin the tour visiting a beautiful and big mural, which tells the story of an important Argentine singer, who even today continues to conquer the hearts of all Argentines. This will give you the opportunity to also get to know about the local music. Then, a few meters from the train tracks that cross the neighborhood, we will see a mural that represents the struggle and empowerment, the feminist cry that crossed the Atlantic and became, by necessity, an international feeling. Towards the end of our tour we will see two other murals, and I will tell you about a transit residence for female adolescents. We will talk about a warrior that represented the thousands of anonymous women who fought for the emancipation of the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata (she fought even while pregnant) and lost her children in the fight against the troops of the Spanish conquest.

What do these murals represent for us? What is the past and present of feminist movements in Argentina? I will answer this and many more questions on this tour. The history of women in my country is also part of the struggle of all women in the world, this time, I welcome you to experience it … through street art.

    An amazing experience with an exceptional guide. My first time in Buenos Aires but certainly not the last. I have loved the narrative and how through the murals Joy creates a dynamic journey full of popular culture and musical references. An inclusive look at the current moments and past events of the women’s movement in Argentina. Definitely recommendable for all genders and ages!!!

Hola! Welcome to Buenos Aires! My name is Johanna, but you can call me Joy.
Born and raised in Buenos Aires, so that makes me a porteña. I’m an experienced 34 year old licensed tour guide, very passionate and dedicated to my work. I have studied Tourism (licensed tour guide and travel agent) as well as Culinary Arts. Apart from loving food I have always been a passionate drummer and I love to dance some tango during my free time. Music pumps in my veins and rhythm is set in my heart.

It has been 10 years since I started with tourism industry, and loving every second of it. Apart from offering local experiences in Buenos Aires, I've been also travelling with people from all ages and from all regions of the world while showing them around South América (Brazil, Uruguay, Bolivia & Chile).

I invite you to jump into this adventure, feel and learn by a local's hand what Buenos Aires has to offer. It will be my pleasure to be your guide, but most important, to be a friend in this corner of the world.

I would love to hear from you.
Come walk with me!
