Errant imaginaries: weaving utopias
About the documentary:
Why are our daydreams important? Because what we crave, what we long for, can reveal what is truly essential. The pandemic has shed light on the urgent need to change our current systems – economic, political, social and affective. Radical imagination is what we need to envision a change in our society, and then to begin to take action.
At the end of March 2020, we – a group of women who call ourselves Mujeres errantes – started an online collective diary. Born in different parts of Europe and Latin America, we call many different places in Europe home. Our collective diary of imagination has become a place for us to share our feelings and desires, with ourselves and with others. The diary has since developed into a larger initiative that unites the diary with a collective inquiry into existing inspiring models and practices of change using the power of sharing feelings and creativity.
Our dream is weaving a network of virtual and physical spaces – we call them casas errantes – where errant women’s knowledge can be shared and valued as key changemakers towards a better life for our societies and our planet.
