“Creating safe and creative spaces where people can grow and make mistakes”
Darienne is a spoken word poet gone development economist gone community creator. Among many other things she’s founded Poetry Slam in Mexico, has worked with homeless youth and founded in 2016, a Women’s Organisation called Vulva Alpha.

He leads and supports various projects from this and also other fields, which as a main motivation support the transfer of knowledge and drive the linking of resources.
