Casa Gallina is a transdisciplinary cultural project whose programming is focused on learnings and actions relating culture, community, and the environment. The project is located in Santa María la Ribera, a neighborhood of Mexico City, where it seeks to facilitate synergies inside the local communities.
Through its platforms, Casa Gallina seeks to promote, inoculate, encourage, and revitalize initiatives and proposals about resilience, the environment, creative models of associations, life styles of responsible consumption, as well as alternative models of social interaction. Casa Gallina also seeks to strengthen local community networks, as well as alliances with initiatives from other areas that share similar interests to establish processes of dialogue, work, and exchange.

Testimony

I found the course very interesting, very creative,
it aroused a great awareness of recycling in my kids,
and awakened their interest to investigate things they did,
such as the periscope. It was very motivating,
they actually did the activities all by themselves,
without anyone pushing them, it made them forget about the pandemic
and made them want to go back to school...

- Damaris Luna, mother of children who participated in the 2021 Summer School “Joining the Dots”

Allies

Casa Gallina strives to build and strengthen networks of alliances with collectives, individuals, civil society organizations and public or private institutions with whom we share common interests. Collaborative processes are built in different formats and frameworks, which weave networks to share resources, strategies and methodologies.

These different alliances aim to enable processes and actions related to critical narratives, so as to trigger collective experiences on ecology, resilience, community liassons and creativity in daily life.

This network is deepened through the creation of new programs and work formats in co-participation with the agents and organizations with which it collaborates. In search of constant expansion, the network is open to constantly integrate new organizations, groups and institutions that share the interests of creating projects in favor of the common good, culture, community and the environment.
