We know that the important thing is not only what we do but also how we do it. This is why we feel it’s relevant to explain how we work.
- We use methodologies and tools that allow us to understand and act upon reality from feminist perspectives. This necessarily means ridding ourselves of heteronormative and productivist habits of work. We explore transdisciplinary methodologies that provide scientific rigor while at the same time breaking out of the tight corsets of specific scientific disciplines. We put these methodologies at the service of the processes we mentor. In so doing we hope to generate the best possible conditions for participation, critical analysis, debate and collective feminist knowledge-building, thereby contributing to the transition towards other longed-for and possible worlds.
- We construct proposals that are adapted in every possible way to the reality of the persons or organizations that request them, and we nurture the whole process (communication, deadlines, etc.) in such a way as to ensure that the results satisfy the final goal of transformation as well as the particular circumstances of each unique situation.
- We build relationships of alliance, cross-pollination and mutual learning. We put our knowledge at the service of the collectives and organizations with which we work, but we understand the relationship as a two-way one, horizontal and open to cross-pollination. We are convinced that no change is possible unless it is crafted in common. We like to get involved in projects that motivate us and in which we feel a part: projects in which we are not external agents. Each new relationship is an opportunity to learn and be transformed.
- We seek to establish links between the global South and North, and our work is nourished by ways of seeing and doing that have arisen from other parts of the planet. We try to challenge our north-centric gaze, opening ourselves to ways of understanding and acting in the world that are, for us, heretofore unimaginable.
