We came together in the desire to build a project in which feminisms might serve as the warp, and around that to weave connections with other individuals and collectives. We hope to contribute to the construction of a world in which everyday lives can be good lives for all, in shared responsibility on a living planet.

XXK is an adventure in which we all take part as members of the assembly. Additionally, some of us combine political and personal commitment with income-generation activities.

We put feminism at the center of our activity, but always in relation to other counterhegemonic frameworks like ecologism, internationalism, degrowth, anticapitalism and others, seeking to strengthen the bonds between these different perspectives and generating frameworks that allow us to understand and act upon reality in emancipatory and subversive ways.

We hope to contribute to the creation of critical knowledge and thought that might be useful in social, cultural and economic transformation, with a firm grounding in sustainability, sovereignty, solidarity and equality in diversity.

We want to do all of this together with others, putting our knowledge and experience at the service of those who need it. We offer to accompany individuals and collectives that work for transformation (social movements, civil society, community and academic spaces, public institutions, NGOs, etc.) in creating both analytical and methodological tools and strategies for political advocacy, action and intervention.

Amaia A. E., Amaia P. O., Cristina S. I., Elis S., Marta P. S., Monika S., Ruth C. V., Sara L. F., Silvia P. L., Sira R. A. y Valentina L. are part of the assembly of XXK.

In charge of income-generating activities:

Silvia Piris Lekuona

Sociologist and Master’s Degree in Gender Equality and International Cooperation. Until forming XXK, I have had the opportunity to combine employment and activism in the fields of feminism, food sovereignty and internationalist solidarity. I have worked in research, training and public policy development. Currently I feel well accompanied, exploring the idea that the path is made by walking. I wish to make real those other worlds and spaces we yearn for; and I wish to do it in a sustainable and liveable way and right from now.

Amaia Pérez Orozco

An economist by training, I risked either abandoning my degree or being indoctrinated in the most orthodox economicism. Luckily, I discovered critical perspectives and ended up fulfilling a PhD. I wonder what it really means to put life at the center, and what consequences this might have upon both our ways of understanding the world and our political undertakings. Today I do it with my colleagues at XXK. My 20-years work/life experience presents “no straight lines”. Diverse and rich, it is mainly rooted in the Spanish state, but with global openness, especially towards Latin America.
