Goals and motivations
Inspired by the power of food and narratives to connect through identities, territories, and create spaces for strong resilient communities! Designer, creative director and coordinator for socio-spatial community projects. I develop projects that stand in the intersection between social design, placemaking and participatory arts in collaboration with cross-disciplinary teams. Embedded in different contexts, these processes create spaces for exchange, understanding and new collective sense of place. Co-Founder of Cocina Colaboratorio (CoLaboratory Kitchen), a project that brings farmers, scientists, creatives and chefs together around the kitchen table to connect, exchange knowledge and prototype new trans-disciplinary solutions to farming; a test ground for ideas that conciliate land restoration, conservation, food production and better livelihood in farming communities.
