Harvest Festival Marrakech Coordinator
Lorén Elhili is a curator, writer and researcher who works with the curatorial as a tool for the creation of spaces that can heal, think collectively through social repair and overcome imperialist ideologies. Her dual heritage and working-class background inform her interests in manifestations of diasporic identity and cultural hybridity and the ways in which these entanglements are produced within the contemporary. Lorén has an academic background in History of Art as well as Curating, from Goldsmiths, University of London. She has curated and organized projects at The Mosaic Rooms, Guest Projects, Iniva Arts, Somerset House Studios, Chisenhale Studios, Rich Mix London, AMP Gallery and The Women’s Art Library and has written work in Photoworks Journal, Azeema Magazine, The Slow Grind II and more.
As Harvest Festival Marrakech Coordinator Lorén is responsible for the overall organisation of the programme of the festival ensuring it is reflective of GDF values and work in the High Atlas Cultural Landscapes Programme. Lorén is really excited about the opportunity to focus on intersectional environmentalism within her work for the festival and the ways in which culture and education can guide us towards equitable futures.
