    Iskay Yachay: Los dos saberes

    Screening. Hall and auditori CCCB.

    This video brings us the voices and minds of Farmers from Cuzco, Peru. They explain what school they want for their children, what education is needed for life to flourish and for the strength of ancestral times to be carried over to new generations. Over the past decade the Nucleus for Andean Cultural Affirmation CEPROSI has been working in Cusco with groups of rural teachers and parents in order to attain an understanding of education and cultural diversity. The reflections they make on the way in which Andean children learn of both worlds, western and Andean, lead them to unexpected conclusions that deserve to be listened to and taken into account.

    ¿Qué son los CIE?

    Screening. Hall and auditori CCCB.

    “The only crime that the inmates of Migrant Detention Centres (CIE) have committed is to cross some border or other, to be poor, and to be black, that's all. Remember that these people are the grandchildren of the slaves who were hunted down like animals and loaded onto ships...” Lamine Sarr

    Decolonial theory to practice in the streets of the Raval .

    Colective presentation. Hall CCCB.

    Espacio del inmigrante is a self-managed space created by and for migrants. A space for gathering, reflection, and action. Drawing on “migrant" knowledge and putting forward their own racialised bodies, its members seek to generate new forms of resistance, empowerment and defense of migrant persons as political subjects.
