Meet Belén from Spain!

I am Belén from Asociación Progestión in Madrid, Spain, an organization working on the social inclusion of people since 1990. 

As a social worker and an actress, I’d like to contribute with my knowledge and experience to the construction of spaces that respect and promote dignity and freedom from a gender and human rights perspective. 

I believe that art is a powerful tool for social change and the empowerment of people, and I have been working along this line over the recent years, both in my job as a social worker in Asociación Progestión and in my theatre company “La Extraña”, with whom we are currently developing the social artistic project Sembrando Antirracismo (sowing anti-racism) in the rural area of Huelva (Spain), together with Mundo en Movimiento -an NGO fostering global citizenship especially focused on people on the move-, Jornaleras de Huelva en Lucha -a feminist self-organised group of women workers in the fields and manufacture of fruit in Huelva fighting for decent living and working conditions for the labourer class- and Mujeres Abril -local amateur theatre company-. This experience is making us feel really inspired and I will love to share it with you. 

I am looking forward to meeting you all!
