    Profile

    Juanli Carrión is an artist, researcher and activist whose work over the past decade has unfolded in the research, development and education of community engaged artistic practices with an emphasis on social and environmental justice. He is currently expanding his practice beyond the art realm to work that becomes policies, non-profit organizations, associations, groups, or other sustainable social or political structures with the aim of translating the results into artistic, pedagogical and community strategies. 

    In 2017 he founded OSS Project Inc. a non-profit organization whose mission is to connect communities with artists to create gardens as places to empower, celebrate and reclaim identity and knowledge, while addressing systemic and structural issues of social inequity.
