Cristina Morales (Barcelona, 1981) is a London based cultural activist. With a background BA in Socio-cultural Anthropology from the University of Barcelona and a Master’s degree in Arts & Culture Management from the Open University of Catalunya, she has become a self-taught multidisciplinary artist, writer and curator linking art & politics.
Keen on the bridge between art and society and inspired by Joseph Beuys, Guy Debord and Herbert Read, she works for freelance projects and organisations using arts & culture as a tool to mainly address topics as identity, civil rights and community development.
Throughout her career, some examples are HostelArt, Ribermusica and Interarts in Barcelona; or Black Cultural Archives, Peckham Platform, Mahogany Carnival Arts and Haringey Arts in London, to mention a few.
Founding artist of the conceptual fashion brand Totem Taboo, she also writes punctually for specialised media like Voces, Wiriko and Radio Africa on contemporary African culture, counterculture and human development through art.
