Boot Camp Winter Workshop

Boot Camp Winter Workshop

From January 5 to 10, 2020, a Boot Camp Winter Workshop entitled Decolonial Methods in Social, Solidarity and Non-Hierarchical Economies is being run by El Cambalache in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico.

The workshop will explore questions such as how to move from theory to practice; how to start a non-capitalist economic project in a collective; and how to use participatory action research to create a small social and/or solidarity economy initiative.

The workshop will appeal to those interested in decolonial economic research and engaging local and indigenous non-western economic practices within an economic project.

Participants are encouraged to bring bring current or proposed research projects for development with discussion focused on possible frameworks and methodological steps for designing and executing a decolonial feminist social and/or solidarity economy project.

There will also be readings and discussion focused on topics such as diverse economies, decolonial economics and feminisms in the majority world of the Americas, and autonomous social movements and their practices.

El Cambalache is a moneyless economy project located in San Cristobal de las Casas created by and for women and everyone they know.
