RADIO.ME X Teachers

Performative writing, body and diverse identities

A dialogue, beyond an exchange of words, is an encounter between bodies, their stories and their lives. Although sometimes we forget where they come from, words have always been born from bodies, they have their homes there and from there they build their bridges.

Design and implementation: Nicoletta Cappello

Impulsed by Red Planea and coordinated by CCCC Valéncia.
