What is the Violet Space?

The Espai Violeta is the tool provided for in the III Equality Plan of the University of Valencia in order to make visible the fight for equality and against sexist violence in all university centers and services and to act against them, with the support of the Equality Unit.

What is group care?

Group attention is conceived as a point where you can meet, in a respectful way, with intimacy, welcome and mutual listening. A safe space to become aware, share experiences, and look together for ways to identify and deconstruct violent relational dynamics. Tools that help us deal with emotional repair and the incorporation of relational empowerment strategies are explored.
