"Daniela cultivates experiences that
MAKE SPACE for change"

I am a community artist, radical educator, and care builder, with



I am equipped and empowered (and, to be honest - thoroughly enjoy) designing spaces for change makers across many identities and experiences to explore how they make change, or as I call it - their "change journey's".

Whether you a leader, parent, outreach worker, artist, entrepreneur, or educator; 
a youth, millennial, or elder,
a front line change maker, online change maker, or aspiring change maker, 
we can all MAKE SPACE for change. 


I cultivate experiences that are accessible, intersectional, trauma informed, and collective, so that you will feel equipped and empowered to center equitable and land based futures in your change journey, (and avoid burn out while doing it)!

 

17 years as a frontline mental health worker,
10 years as a community builder in arts and culture, and

Creative Liberation Practices is a framework to
MAKE SPACE
for imagination and creativity.

lib·er·a·tion

/ˌlibəˈrāSH(ə)n/

noun
the act of setting someone free from imprisonment, slavery, or oppression; release.
"the liberation of all political prisoners"

Creative Liberation Practices MAKE SPACE for us to approach systems of oppression - like racism, colonialism, ableism, or sexism - with imagination and creativity so we can design sustainable change.

You are here because you are a change maker and you want to feel more empowered and better equipped to contribute to an equitable and land based future. 

  • If you are a newer to change work: it might seem overwhelming, and you may feel unsure of where to start.

  • If you are experienced in change work:  you may feel burnt out, and in need of a boost of energy.

  • If you have stepped out of change work: you may be taking a much needed break, and want to approach change work more sustainably.

Creative Liberation Practices supports you to MAKE SPACE to explore your unique change journey  through creativity, (un)learning, and care.
