I’ve accepted a position at 2112, Chicago’s first creative sector incubator to lead strategic initiatives, I am excited to take on this new challenge and have been transitioning my focus over the past few months.

As a result, I have decided to suspend Arte y Vida Chicago’s operations indefinitely to focus exclusively on my work at 2112. I am extremely grateful for all of the opportunities that Arte y Vida has given to me and for the community we have built.

Thank you for your support over the past 10 years!

As always, feel free to contact me at
