Mujeres de Centro America y Chiapas

Durante el mes de julio del 2011, el espacio de FOMMA le dio la bienvenida a las Mujeres Maya Kaqla, un grupo teatral ubicado en Guatemala, para una serie de talleres e intercambios formales e informales en los que participaron las actrices de FOMMA y sus homólogas guatemaltecas. Las dos organizaciones forman parte de una red más grande de mujeres que trabajan en el proceso de capacitación para las mujeres indígenas. Realizando un trabajo de autonomía para la mujer que se basa la diversidad, el multiculturalismo y la interculturalidad de las mujeres maya, Kaqla compartió el espacio de FOMMA, colaborando en torno a la creación de escenas teatrales basadas en la memoria y la experiencia autobiográfica. El encuentro potenció el teatro como herramienta que permite denunciar la violencia de género y el racismo hacia las poblaciones indígenas en Guatemala y Chiapas.
