Kukily is an Afro-feminist artistic collective that creates interdisciplinary works through audiovisual media, installations, performance and cultural management. The group was formed at the 31st National Meeting of Women (Rosario, Argentina, 2016) and is made up of four members/founders: Julia Cohen Ribeiro, Lina Lasso, Jasmin Sánchez and Colleen Ndemeh Fitzgerald. They have presented works at the Kirchner Cultural Center (CC), the Haroldo Conti CC for Memory, the National Historic Museum, the CC for Cooperation, the Pasco Multispace, and Casa Sofía, among others. They have also presented works and managed virtual events for international audiences. They were winners of the National Institute for Theater’s “National Performance Contest in Virtual Environments” with their performance piece Bustos (Busts, 2020), and winners of IberCultura Viva’s “Community Practices: Solidarity and Collective Care” contest for their short audiovisual piece Respiramos (Let’s Breathe, 2020). They have collaborated with the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Women, Gender and Diversity and various grassroots organizations on Afro-descendant issues.
