Valor y Cambio: Un Proyecto en “Alegría Desconolizada” // Value and Exchange: A Project in “Decolonized Joy”

Valor y Cambio es un proyecto de arte narrativo, participación comunitaria y economía solidaria iniciado por las artistas Frances Negrón-Muntaner y Sarabel Santos Negrón. Iniciado en Puerto Rico en medio de la crisis económica y actualmente en la ciudad de Nueva York, Valor y Cambio pretende generar una amplia conversación sobre qué es una economía justa y cómo fomentar el empoderamiento colectivo frente a políticas de austeridad neoliberales a nivel local y nacional.” // “Valor y Cambio is a story-telling, community-building, and solidarity economy project started by artist Frances Negrón-Muntaner and collaborator visual artist Sarabel Santos Negrón. Started in Puerto Rico amidst the economic crisis and currently in New York City, Valor y Cambio is out to spark a broad conversation about what is a just economy and how to foster collective empowerment in the face of austerity and neoliberal policies locally and nationally.”

Valor y cambio, explores the possibility of an economic system beyond current political and economic structures that allows for a more inclusive exchange community, in place of a colonial, capitalist market of extraction and exploitation. In the case of Puerto Rico, this leads to a “decolonized joy,” a joy that celebrates community and identity outside of colonial thought and practice.
