Born and raised in Southwest Detroit, “mother, daughter, sister, creative,” Amelia has been active in her community for over 17 yrs. through her professional experience in “brick & mortar” non-profit development and as a community organizer in arts/cultural work.
Creating and executing workshops, community events and large-scale mural productions.
Proud of her Chilena-Latina-American heritage and language, she strives to use them as inspiration to continue developing her skills as a creative.
Her passion as an activist is rooted in movements that are founded on popular education and creative expression, working towards creating outlets that encourage us to collectively challenge the current norms and structures of mis-education which keep communities disenfranchised.
