The Museo Afroviviente is a collective intervention that takes place in institutions, re-narrating and embodying the life and work of Black women. Performance, pictorial techniques, sound and installation are used to share histories that are not taught at schools or museums. The aim of this project is to identify thirteen Afro-descendant women, who will launch the second chapter of Museo Afroviviente and further its activities. The identification process will include a literature review, two focus groups and a survey of 200 participants. The focus groups will also look at oral histories, body movements and emotional exchanges to find the best candidates for the continuation of the Museo Afroviviente project.
Hermosa Intervención is a self-managed group, composed of Afro-descendant and Indigenous Uruguayan women, migrants and members of the LGBTQI+ community, who live in the capital and the interior of Uruguay.
