From the Inside Out // De Dentro Hacia Afuera

hands making a shadow“From the Inside Out” // “De Adentro Hacia Afuera,” is a project by the 4W Women and Wellbeing Initiative and Meninas Cartoneras Editorial in Madrid, Spain. The project gathered the voices and artistic expressions of people around the world that bore witness to the many ways that COVID-19 has impacted us and to create as a collective vision for the future. With our dual language platform, people from countries such as México, Spain, Perú, United States, Colombia, Chile, Portugal, Italia and others, have shared in either English or Spanish their experiences as narrative, poetry, photos, and/or drawings.

Their reflections on their experiences during COVID 19 respond to questions such as: What have you learned about yourself and your community? What was hidden in your life that has been uncovered? These stories and works of art also express a vision about the future and respond to inquiries such as: What are your worries, fears, hopes and dreams? What matters now? In this e-book, the different stages of our collective experience are organized to reflect care, loss, sorrow, comfort, thought, and hope, and to design the path we seek to trace together and as a way to create change in our world.
