    Abstract:
    Raising Care is a platform that brings together people who struggle to redistribute care within and beyond their collectives. Born during the pandemic within the framework of The School of Mutations activated by the Institute of Radical Imagination. In September 2021, as part of the programme On the Precipice of Time: Practices of Insurgent Imagination. The Zapatista Forum, we've articulated Cuidados! a workshop on care that took place at the autonomous space La Villana de Vallekas in Madrid. The aim is collecting knowledge and urges of communities: healthcare access support, housing struggles, reproductive justice, care workers' rights. This workshop contributed to straightening the alliances between collectives and biosindicates from Spain, Greece, Serbia and Italy, merging their experiences and the tools they developed. The common starting point is conceiving care as an act of constitutive resistance, to question how to co-design a better world for the most starting from now. To activate group dynamics we designed a fanzine as a collaborative methodological tool to open up new questions, rather than to offer answers. A tool to think with all those who are imagining different social and ecological possibilities. A selection of four questions included in the zine are presented in this article.
