In this chapter, members of the Extracting Us Curatorial Collective reflect on the process, experiences and learnings of co-curating a series of exhibitions and events. We identify ourselves as situated researchers, activists and creatives. Engaging with feminist political ecology as both theory and practice, we revisit how we cultivated care, foregrounding community and weaving connections between extractive contexts. Our collective inquiry, made possible through paying attention to how the emotional and the embodied brings the everyday into scholar-activist exhibition spaces, has allowed us to present and explore different perspectives to the multitude of critical registers through which extractivism, resistance and solidarity are understood.
