DIARIAS/COMUNIDADES DE CUIDADO
Diarias/Comunidades de cuidado (Diaries/Communities of Care) was an online participatory cultural intervention designed to document the lives of communities of care formed by women and trans* people during the pandemic and confinement, and as a means to be aware of others from a communal ethics of care.
The intervention started with an invitation to a woman or trans* person from Mexico or abroad so that, together with six members of their affective community —family, friends and/or colleagues, also women or trans* persons— they would assemble a week’s Diaria (Diary). The idea was that they would each complete the entry corresponding to each day of the week with a written, photographic, video and/or drawing account of what they did, thought and felt that day. However, the invitation was only a starting point and each participant appropriated the project and shaped it in their own way.
