Her performance is characterized by installing the idea of the artist as an activist within the community that promotes reflection and empowerment from the Arts and thus contributes to the enrichment of learning processes in order to effectively reinforce the skills necessary for this XXI century, that is, the promotion of critical thinking, logical reasoning and socio-cultural awareness.
