Goteo #286: To exist is to resist

🗣 It has been three years since the anti-racist activist and communicator bell hooks left us. Thanks to the writer, we have been able to access one of the most relevant reflections in recent years on the inequalities derived from race, class and gender. Indebted to her thought, we understand that culture and education are essentially political acts, against hegemony and rooted in the anti-colonial struggle.

🌟 Understanding racial discrimination as an invariable element in our societies is what allows us to remember our ability to accompany (or be accompanied), to overcome these moments and move forward together (or stop or retreat) towards a full life free of oppressions.

📬 In this newsletter we talk about projects that act against racism with self-organisation, spaces for debate, social awareness and mutual support. Do you want to know them? Let's go there!

Fes! Festival de Culturas en resistencia #AccióMigrant

🎭 Do you have plans for 21 June? We present the third edition of the "Fes!" festival, a project that brings together artistic experiences, cultural projects with a social impact and spaces for dialogue and encounters.

🤗 The festival offers a diverse programme framed in the Barcelona cultural ecosystem, but with an eye on those people who were born in the Global South and want to promote a transformative culture.

🧡 If you also believe that culture should lay the foundations for people to intervene in the public sphere and actively participate in the social and political debates that affect us, you can take part in the festival:

Denunciemos el racismo

👀 SOS Racisme Catalunya is a non-profit organisation that has been working since 1989 to support people and organisations that are victims of racism. At the same time, they carry out awareness-raising and organisational work to raise public awareness of racism in all its forms.

🤯 In 2023 alone, they have assisted a total of 628 people or groups from more than 83 different Catalan municipalities. But to continue with their work of denouncing and accompanying people, they need to expand the resources of the association and extend the service of attention and denunciation.

✊🏽 For this reason, they have launched a campaign to expand the team of trainers and specialists, with the aim of promoting a citizenry mobilised for anti-racism. You can participate in:

And you?

😙 Do you think crowdfunding is not sufficiently known in your community or organisation? Support us so that we can continue to spread our knowledge to initiatives that need to get funded and give their digital transition a major boost.

🙌 Choose the reward in our #FollowUsFollowTheCurrent campaign and you can apply for a 2-hour digital session to introduce crowdfunding to your community.

See you in the next newsletter! 😜

This is as far as we have got. We hope this newsletter has encouraged you to keep walking towards the society of all and for all that we are gradually approaching. See you next time!

In order for us to continue our work so that more civic initiatives take place
