Yo soy somos

Yo Soy Somos [I am We are] is a project led by a dozen women, neighbors of Madrid. With their personal, collective, local and global stories they bring us closer to their often invisible reality. The work consists of a newspaper/exhibition in which the photographs are accompanied by various texts about migrant women and an exhibition in large photographic blocks that can be placed outside. The narratives are constructed through photographs from the personal archives of the protagonists and their portraits taken by Angélica Dass, the project’s artistic director.

Starting from an approach that moves them away from the prejudices and stereotypes to which they are usually subjected, through ‘Yo Soy Somos’, we want to get to know better these women who do not normally appear in the media or public spaces, but who have been living together in our society for many years and contributing to initiatives of change and social transformation.

This is a collaborative initiative in which different associations and groups have participated, such as SEDOAC, Rumiñahui, SOS Racismo Madrid, Mirando por África, among others, together with Alianza por la Solidaridad, within the project financed by the Madrid City Council “Migrant women and human rights: exchanging, weaving networks and strengthening the exercise of rights and the participation of migrant women in a global society without discrimination”.
