In many cases, learning is seen as self-advancement with every learner aiming to maximize one's own take-aways. In that process, knowledge is privatised to serve personal career or other interests. In contrast with that, here are methods which see knowledge sharing as a way to do the contrary - to make knowledge common. Learning happens through collection and sharing of different perspectives and all of them together end up in some publicly accessible form, be it a book, a video recording, or an archive.



Cuerpo-territorio is a participative knowledge sharing method rooted in South American practices, as well as indigenous, decolonial and feminist ontologies which understand knowledge, bodies and territories as united and interconnected. The methods use hands-on, visual ways to co-produce knowledge among participants. Namely, participants draw the territory on their bodies, in ways that take into account both their knowledge of the territory and their experiences of living in it. It can be used as a method to reflect on experiences among participants, share them and advocate for changes, but it can also be used as a participative research method. It is specifically well suited when dealing with sensitive political topics, with experiences of trauma, as well as with those in which participants should connect their bodies and feelings to wider surroundings and territory.
