Mujeres Difíciles: Encuentro Artístico y Educativo sobre Feminismo en Ecuador
Mujeres Difíciles (Difficult Women) explores notions of feminism in the ecuadorian context.
I worked alongside 19 participants during a month (Dec 17-Jan 17), where we read about feminism in Latin America, exchanged and shared experiences, knowledge, art and our personal stories in order to learn about the social, cultural and political potential that feminism has. During this time, I also lead two mini workshops in ceramics and fibers, where they created pieces that were informed by the texts, the conversations and by a feminist glossary, which resulted in this beautiful exhibition that took place at Más ARTE galería taller, in Quito Ecuador.
