(Education Emergency in the Ecuadorian Amazon), is an ongoing participatory project, started in 2020, aiming to design a system of pictograms and infographics for popular education processes with and for indigenous students from 9 different nationalities of the Ecuadorian Amazon.
We are motivated by the need to keep building own representation resources and making visible different ways of marginalisation from university and education, that Indigenous students experience. In this process, we working together: indigenous students, Confeniae (which is the mother organization for indigenous peoples in the region); and design researcher; to investigate and support, local resistance practices —both material and symbolic—that challenge social exclusion.
