I will be taking part in TIERRA SOSTENIBLE (SUSTAINBLE EARTH) a series of workshops with resident trans-disciplinary collective Cocina CoLaboratorio (Mexico) who will hold a series of four gatherings of “enunciation” – thinking through and naming the causes we care about as a starting point to enact local change.
Taking place around the kitchen table, the local territory and in our imaginaries – and enacted through cooking, eating and sharing together – these four gatherings are inspired by the practice of Comunalidad.
Comunalidad is a set of collective practices enacted by the indigenous communities of Oaxaca in southern Mexico: it is a way of living and working that emerges from a specific relationship with nature proposing other organising mechanisms and an alternative to sustainability.
Over the course of the gatherings, participants will develop a collection of formulas, strategies and practices to build up trans-local learning environments and experiment with collaborative ways of strengthening our relationships with nature in order to aid its regeneration.
This series is for participants who seek to challenge, overthrow, and replace the systems that oppress and exploit nature, humans and other species.
This event is part of the public programme of Delfina Foundation’s fifth season of the Politics of Food, in partnership with Gaia Art Foundation and with additional support from a range of individuals and partners.
