About Mujer Artista

In 2014, after a series of conversations between Latin Canadian women artists Cecilia Araneda (filmmaker, curator), Praba Pilar (interdisciplinary artist) and Monica Martinez (visual artist), we came up with the idea of participating in an artistic process from the starting point of collective dialogue.

We named this initiative Mujer Artista.

From our core group of three, Mujer Artista gradually expanded to involve more artists (see artist directory)

In 2021, Mujer Artista commenced another project cycle with mentors Franci Duran (media art) and Alexandra Garrido (dance), a Mujer Artista alumna.
