Bio

Humanist and nurse. Deeply interested in both philosophy and scientific research, she combines her different areas of expertise to analyse the relationship between ethics, politics, art and health. Currently, she is taking her PhD in political and moral philosophy based on care ethics and how artistic and cultural agents can participate in shaping other nets of life sustainability. 
Poet and singer, she loves to explore all forms of experimentation through sound, word and image. As an author, she has published four books and has collaborated in different anthologies and literary journals. 

Wave, knit what generates emotion and, after a moment of joy, dynamite everything to create again, from the margin. Her premise: against chains, art and rebellion. 

Project

Health can't be reduced to its biological perspective and to healthcare systems. On the contrary, it needs a holistic approach that takes into account different voices and agents. In this sense, humanities can have a key role. The aim of this project is to rethink the fundamental question: which kind of life do we want to live? and use care ethics to stablish an alternative model for public policies and ethical values that involve interdependency, solidarity and social justice. In this context, Arts in Health can be seen as an opportunity for cultural institutions to be health agents.
