I design and carry out educational-social projects using Art, Anthropology and Photography as mediation tools.
The principles and values that guide my work are: art as a means of expression, participation, equality, empowerment and inclusion, as mediums for building coexistence.
And among my key objectives are:
– The encouragement of critical and creative thinking and the ability to communicate by taking part in experimental ideas using art.
– Developing an ability to work as a team, sharing reflective processes that interrelate the language of art in the creation of specific products.
Workshops on conscious photography.
- Self-awareness through photography (Individuals/Groups)
- Empowering and communal photography (Women at risk of exclusion)

``Photography as a form of self-knowledge and personal development``.
Being the subject and object when taking a photograph, empowerment and promoting freedom and self-awareness.
``Invisible Images`` (Women at risk of exclusion).

``Adopt the stance``(Minors and adolescents)(Minors and adolescents).
«Men look at women. Women look at themselves in relation to the way that they are looked at. This not only determines the relationships between men and women, but also the relationship of women with themselves» (J. Berger, 1970)

A photography project for Muslim women based on self-awareness, self-expression and recognition.
The project consists of a set of workshops (those mentioned previously and/or different ones) which aim to promote social participation among women, create links, forms of creative expression around questions of identity, adaptation or more personal issues. At the end of the workshop, participants will develop a photography project which will be presented, along with one of my photos of each participant, and they will give a talk at the inauguration. The aim is to raise awareness of cultural and religious diversity.
- Aimed at: Muslim women
- Duration: 10 meetings of 2 hrs
- Price: from €3.000
- Min: 5 people
“It doesn’t matter if many people don’t like the photo, what really matters is that a picture conveys the intention behind it. And, above all, that the image speaks. Thanks to this project I have found passions in me that I didn’t know about and I have finally been able to take the first step that has made me get out of my bubble. Marking a before and after in my life”.
“It has helped me to meet different Muslim women and to confirm that we have to break down barriers that we also have among ourselves.
“Participating in the workshop has been one of the most enriching things I have done lately. In my personal case, it has helped me to express my doubts, fears and rejection of certain points, not so much of Islam, but of the patriarchal and sexist interpretation of Islam.
“On a photographic level, it has been a discovery to see how we can show feelings with an image, as well as moods. And it is something that we can continue to do on our own and that can help us to exploit another part of our lives”.
“I think it was a large space for Muslim women to come together to express our ideas that concern us, our feelings that move us and our hopes that open up new paths for us. For me, to have participated in this project has been an honour and it is the only one we have to be able to take advantage of and to be able to make the image of Muslim women in this society visible and for them to hear us say “enough of rejection, racism and machismo”!
Advice, accompaniment and facilitation of processes.
Following in the wake of Marian López Cao and other scholars of gender and art, my proposal attempts to implement the anthropological character of gender as viewed through exhibitions, works and art or educational proposals by examining the presence of gender concepts and a more inclusive view in the art galleries of the state. My proposals also differ depending on each commission and the institutions requesting them (e.g. museums that want to implement that gender viewpoint in their concept for exhibitions, itineraries, as a means of addressing interventions and curators…)
- Aimed at: Museums and other art or educational institutions.
- Includes: Visit, adapted academic and practical dossier, training of employees.
- Price: Dependent on the project
