Co-founder − Project manager
I am a woman designer. I am constantly wondering how my creations are shaped by the cultural values of the society to which I belong. I define myself as feminist, as a person that cares about human and other beings. As a designer, I want my work to both convey my own values and challenge some common assumptions regarding gender. I believe that design may be employed to bring social changes, and for this reason, my creations are a reflection of my values: equality, respect of nature, and community engagement

Participatory community research
I’m an environmental anthropologist, ethnographer of war, rural worlds, and human-animal relationships. I wrote a book (When Forest Run Amok. War and its Afterlives in Indigenous and Afro-Colombian territories) that describes the way war becomes an experience that extends beyond the human, affecting many other beings with whom people share the forests and rivers that make up one of the most biodiverse places in the world.
My ethnographic argument aims to lay the foundations of a more inclusive transitional and restorative justice, enhancing practices of memory, truth and reconciliation in Colombia and beyond. The tenet is simple: to redress the harm violence provokes, one needs to document the lively relationalities of peoples and their natural worlds, taking into account the agency and personhood of beings such as mountains or spirits but also listening to animals, rivers, and forests.
