El honor y la responsabilidad de ser parte del colectivo de escritores de:
historias y prácticas para construir el mundo de todos
Stories and Practices of building a world where all belong
By mid 2016 I was invited to join the Writer´s Collective team for The Fifth Barefoot Guide (BFG) MISSION INCLUSION - Stories and Practices of building a world where all belong.
What a joy! What a pride!
Ever since I met Doug Reeler (BFG founder) I have been a great fan their work. BFG team thrives to enable social change practitioners and leaders across the globe to more collaboratively use their experience and collective intelligence to initiate and support effective change practices to contribute to a freer, more just, equitable and sustainable world
So now I am a fan AND a writer collaborator for the Fifth BFG MISSION INCLUSION - Stories and Practices of building a world where all belong
"As Barefoot Guide writers, we wished to take a look at what people have done and what they are doing now to change things. We hope that by reading stories of change, success and failure, and by asking questions and seeking to understand, we and other practitioners can gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be inclusive in our practice and work alongside those who are excluded in bringing about change. We believe we can all start to address exclusion right now"
My heart bursted with excitment all through the Writer´s Collective process.
Going through years and years of my studies, papers and stories about people with intelectual disabilities and selecting the ones that best fitted with the amazing editor Lucia Nass was a blessing experience. We proved to be two committed women challeging our breath taking time zones: Lucia in Nepal and I in Argentina !
I can still feel the thrill when last October 3rd (yes, on my birthday!) I received the Guide: all five chapters, filled with real stories, insights, grounded theories, ideas, poetry and all beautifully illustrated by 7 illustrators from around the world...
