Presentation of the intertwining area

To interlace:

To join or tie one thing to another by crossing them with each other to form a homogeneous whole.

 

There are several factors that encourage cooperation, which NGOimpacto applies intuitively and intentionally. We continually change our ways of interacting, practice exchanges in all directions, and share management strategies, organizational programming, fundraising, and communication skills that are useful in the game of collaborative community-based development.

Our physical and emotional body is intertwined with the territory we inhabit and with the practices we inherit. As women, we are a complex unit of searches and feelings that sometimes, due to the needs of livelihood, are driven by an accelerated productive rhythm that ignores the body-soul nexus.

From the urgency of connecting the Technical Productive and the Human Development area, at the end of 2022 the area of Intertwined Textile Impact was born, whose methodology is based on the life cycles that all beings have, but that we see particularly present in indigenous communities, these are: seeding, germination, growth and harvest. Thus, with this organic understanding, we devise facilitations in each phase, with the purpose of strengthening women artisans in a deeper and more transcendent way.

We focus on reinforcing the autonomy of their voice through breathing exercises and the exploration of their inner wind with the use of ancient musical instruments and storytelling. Likewise, we exalt their ancestral wisdom both from its historical-cultural, intuitive and feminine dimension, as well as from their being as entrepreneurs in training, using drawing, design, conceptualization and elaboration of textile jewelry pieces from their traditional techniques, with a contemporary approach.
