Hola. I'm Mariana Palomar.

“I love working with Careyes Foundation because it is a space that allows all of my ideas and others to become. It gives people opportunities to learn many diverse things in a very free, fun and dynamic way.”

About Me

I oversees the Art Workshop Program (AWP), which focuses on supporting the development of art skills and creativity to kids of the 12 communities we work with. Under a structure of artist-residences from 3-4 months, where emergent Mexican artists come to impart the artistic workshops, I'm in charge of supervising the development of the artists and the workshops imparted to the kids. In my role, I also provide guidance and the curation of the exhibition in the Careyes Art Space that shows off the work of the children throughout each residency. I am originally from Guadalajara, Mexico, where I studied International Relations at ITESO. My experience teaching English ranges from kids, adolescents, and adults in the past six years. I take joy in supporting people’s educational growth and working alongside them. In the past, I've partnered with organizations focused on social justice and development, and also worked on academic research centered on the defense of Human Rights. Now, I am developing in project, event and cultural management. I am passionate about art, writing, painting, and music, and enjoy spending time outdoors and hanging out with people.


Interested in getting involved with the art program and learning more, don't hesitate to contact me!
