24 & 25 November 2023 | talk & walk | Zürich.

In 2022, researchers from the Territorial Indigenous Entity AWAI, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, and ETH Zurich held two-day encounters in eight Inga communities to discuss diverse understandings of the concept «territorio» in relation to higher education. A total of 450 Inga representatives of the Andes, the Amazon, and 22 cities across Colombia participated in various actions that explored three ways of perceiving their territory: cartopathy (experience), cartophony (narrate), and cartography (draw). This process led to insights about the contemporary meaning of Indigenous territory in the Andean Amazon that will be presented at ETH Zurich (Nov. 24), followed by aniteration of the research methodology applied to Zurich in a full day of walking, talking, and drawing (Nov 25).
