Manuela Ochoa is an artist and a Humanities PhD student at Concordia University. She holds a Master’s degree from the San Francisco Art Institute. She is the co-founder of the digital projects Oropéndola, arte y conflicto (now part of the Museum of Memory of Colombia) and Mirlo Podcast. Manuela was co-curator for the exhibit Feliza Bursztyn, Elogio de la chatarra at the Museo Nacional de Colombia and producer for BBC Radio’s Apichatpong Weerasethakul (In the studio). Her research explores the possibilities of oral history and artistic methods in the Colombian post-conflict scenario and their participatory potential so that the listening experience is not passive and unilateral but rather transformative and empowering.
