Meet our team

María González, Co-founder and Director

I am an art historian and art educator, and one of the founders of Lon-art.org. The organisation is the result of a long process of exploring different walks of life, travelling and reflecting on art, education and social matters.  I am the one designing and delivering the projects. I am passionate about educating people through the arts and empowering them to create a better society.

Rocío Carvajal, Co-founder and Events and Marketing Manager

I am one of Lon-art.org’s founders. I have experience organising events, and producing and delivering marketing strategies. I make sure that the events at Lon-art.org run smoothly and in a professional way. I also take care of the budget and expenses for every project. But what I love is reaching many people through social media and letting them know about our projects!

Jessica Juckes, Education and Exhibitions Officer

I am an art historian and qualified languages teacher. I help design and facilitate workshops with Lon-art.org and I am assisting in the curation of the organisation’s second Social Exhibition. I am particularly interested in non-Western art and initiatives combining museum and gallery education with Modern Foreign Languages and EAL.

Bisila Noha, Projects Development Manager

I was witness to Lon-art’s conception, working on the organisation’s first ever workshop in Vienna. My background is very varied: I am a linguist and translator with experience in International Relations and Advertising, also passionate about art. Such versatility allows me to get involved in Lon-art’s range of activities at many levels: as PR coordinator, writer and facilitator, with a focus on building new partnerships for our projects.

Rosa Pérez, Art Workshops Facilitator

I was fascinated by Lon-art.org’s first social exhibition in London, “Seeds of Creativity”. Since then, I have collaborated with Lon-art.org by facilitating art workshops and events. My educational background in languages and Middle Eastern Studies makes me particularly interested in learning from other cultures and engaging people with this region of the world through art.

Daniel Roberts, web site developer and digital artist

I work in web development and online. I am also teacher and have an interest in education and the arts. With Lonart I have designed the project See Yourself in 3D developed with Centre Point. I hope to develop further digital projects that incorporate themes such as identity, narrative, the environment  to enable a more integrated social awareness in education.

Veronica Restrepo, art educator and ceramic artist

I am an anthropologist, youth worker, facilitator and ceramicist. As an artist, I experiment with different textures, shapes, techniques and concepts, and am interested in the idea of collectivity and creating solidarity through art. Through my work, I try to reflect on the way we interact with each other and the way we could change reality. Thoughts that always are present when I help design new projects at Lon-art.

Alinta Sarah, art educator

I have a MA in African studies, and I am also a teacher and art facilitator working with different organisations. I have a long expertise designing and delivering art workshops. Among others, I have organised Afrokarib, a series of cultural and artistic events that explored the diversity which exists in Caribbean culture. With Lon-art, I have taken active part in creating the Black History workshops as an art educator.
