Cristina Morales is a London-based Spanish-born Cultural Activist. Interested in deepening her knowledge of human beings she studied a BA in Social and Cultural Anthropology in the University of Barcelona where she developed her political consciousness. With a passion and conviction for art as our best and only expressive asset to explore, question and redefine our realities, she later specialised with a MA in Arts & Culture Management from the Open University of Catalonia becoming a Social Practice curator, writer and self-taught artist linking art with politics. She works since then for freelance projects and public, private and nonprofit organisations using arts & culture as an agency tool to challenge society specialising in identity, decolonialism and community development. Examples of such projects and organisations include HostelArt, Ribermusica and Interarts in Barcelona or Black Cultural Archives, Peckham Platform, Mahogany Carnival Arts and Haringey Arts in London to mention a few. In addition to being the founding curator of the first decolonial thinktank mapping Cultural Activism worldwide Counterspace, and the founding artist of the Situationist brand of political performances and designs Totem Taboo, she also writes punctually specialising in Social Practice and Counter-narratives such as African and African Diaspora Arts & Culture, Avant-garde and Countercultures, and Human and Social Development through Art for media such as Voces, Wiriko and Radio Africa. www.moralescristina.com
