Workshop Between the Vulnerable Territory and the Utopia emphasizes the importance of collaboration and solidarity, beyond borders, language and ethnic groups. Participants design a map of vulnerable territory based on their context, beliefs and experiences. Then together, we analyze the map, and strategize resilient strategies towards transforming vulnerable territories into safe and inspiring spaces. At the end the workshop participants, individually or collaboratively, design maps which imagine territories of possibilities. With collaborative facilitation by the artists, some renewed awareness and imagination, the vulnerable territory become the utopian territory – imaginary, but not necessarily unreal.
Workshop Between the Vulnerable Territory and the Utopia has been conceived in collaboration with EMIRETH HERRERA – independent curator and professor at Universidad Autonoma de Coahuila in Mexico
