To a large extent, S.U.R. it is an attempt to decolonize the spaces of knowledge production. In this sense, we seek to incorporate Latin American voices and perspectives, as well as forms of knowledge that do not necessarily come from formal academic models, such as organizational processes of struggle, resistance, community and cultural processes.

Through design methodologies, collective actions and acting bodies we want to shake everything, so that the university mainstreams the epistemic perspectives of the South in its strategies.

Because we understand the south not only as a geography, but also as a way of stopping, looking, dancing and feeling the world.
