The XXK Collective: Feminisms, thinking and action is made up of Amaia Pérez Orozco, Silvia Piris Lekuona and Valentina Longo. 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. It is an adventure in which we hope to combine income-generation with our own political and personal commitment 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.
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.
Who we are:
Officially a sociologist and political scientist, her concern is to make sure that every human being has a place with dignity in this world we all share.
Exploring with others the notion that we make the road by walking, and how to put into practice—in a sustainable and livable way—those other worlds we dream of, starting now.
An economist by training, Amaia tries to explore 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.
