The first version of the Market for Useful Knowledge and Non-Knowledge in Colombia took place in November 2019. The issues addressed revolved around water. On December 2nd, 2021, 70 people from varied places of Colombia will arrive in Barrancabermeja to talk to some of the region’s inhabitants about diverse ways to face the deep inequities that afflict the country. They will meet in Colombia’s second version of the Market for Useful Knowledge and Non-Knowledge.
Barrancabermeja, by the Magdalena riverbank and sheltered by an exuberant vegetation, has been an epicenter of the country’s armed conflicts. In this city, mining exploitation, fishing, an encounter between diversities, mobilization and social struggles converge, overlapping multiple and diverse memories. Thus, the city is a favorable place to lay on the talk-table the cards of inequities and inequalities that have been built in our country and how we are overcoming them.
