Season 1

Care, Resilience and Healing

Casa la Serena: giving healing a home

A group of women in Mexico and Central America gathered dreams and hopes to answer to the obstacles they face being activists and being women. Ana María Hernández and Nallely Tello share about Casa la Serena, a house dedicated to care and healing in Oaxaca, Mexico. They tell us about the journey creating this house, about the network and broader reflection around it.


Havle, a muslim feminist organization in Turkey

Questioning the unique - not to say male - way to tell history and to interpret islam led a group of women in Turkey to create the muslim feminist organisation Havle. Our interview with Rümeysa Çamdereli is a story of alternative truths, of theoretical discussions across continents and of music.

Proyecto Titi, the care work of preservation

They care for one specific monkey species: the cotton top tamarins. By doing so, Proyecto Titi helps the forest in the North West of Colombia grow back to what it used to be. In this episode we talk with Rosamira Guillem about the necessity for community in preservation, the importance of educating about ecology and about how their multi-layered conservation project impacts much more than the monkeys.
