The need to intervene in medical knowledge was fundamental for people diagnosed early with HIV. The change in relationship between health, knowledge and power, which led to the first AIDS activism, is the starting point for this activity, which seeks to activate an exchange network between different forms of practical knowledge on the political management of the body.
The activity focuses on five sessions of conversation and debate on issues such as HIV/AIDS, ecology and food, functional diversity, the legal system and migration. Local coordinator of the programme: Josebe Iturrioz.
