‘You Tell Me’, proposed to map socio-spatial stories of 9 selected and anonymous Roma women tthrough the study of their spatial fluxes at 3 scales: the domestic scale; the neighbourhood´s public space´s scale and the city´s scale.
The ethnic and symbolic representation of these specific and existing feminine stories in Braga´s social housing neighborhoods does not intend to end or close in itself. Instead, it seeks to become the beginning of another dialogue that is focused on questioning stabilized and homogenized notions of the Roma culture, specifically the socio-spatial position of the contemporary Roma women of Braga. The woman, the daughter, the mother, the wife, and the grandmother who are living according to contradictory ambivalences between: the persistence of symbolic heritages, ethnic traditions, political/social issues of negligence, which are still present in the city of Braga.
