Social Impact

The INTIMAL project (2017-2019), reflected on Colombian women’s migration as a Case Study. The project used Deep Listening® practice, sensory ethnography, sound and body movement improvisation, and methods of Embodied Music Cognition and Human-Computer Interaction, as cross-disciplinary layers to conceptually design and inform the INTIMAL system.

For the group of participants, the intensity of the experience led to the emergence of a virtual territory of Latin American migrant women, which I have supported since 2018. We regularly meet to listen to our migrations, dream and improvise.

Building on our interdisciplinary practices and conversations, a co-creation collective of Latin American Migrant Women, emerged. The collective develops creative actions for individual agency and collective transformation in our host lands and native places, expanding notions of femininity, territory and care.

Here is the website of the collective and the collaborations in which we have engaged:
