colectivo amasijo

colectivo amasijo is a group of women from different parts of Mexico (Veracruz, Oaxaca, State of Mexico and Mexico City) united in their desire to actively reflect on the origin and diversity of our food. The collective was born in 2016 and ever since has been providing a platform for non-dominant voices: the narratives of women close to the land, stories that tell us the real cost of climate change and show us the way towards the regeneration of the land. As an open collective they cook collectively as a way to share, learn, care, conserve, relate and celebrate the (bio)diversity of food. Their projects are aimed at making visible the interdependence between language, culture and territory. Through these projects,- that can take the form of gatherings, dinners, research, actions, ceremonies, exhibitions, markets, seminars, film, talks or other – the collective builds the needed structures to form a community in which taking care of ourselves and taking care of the territory we inhabit is priority and we understand food as a network of relationships.
