Ana Lisa

 

Ana Lisa Alperovich is a trained eco-designer and sustainable culture producer from Buenos Aires. She received her BA Hons from Goldsmiths, University of London, a city where she spent most of her 20s and inspires her enormously. After gaining experience on designing public events for [re]design through England and China, she went back to her hometown to find out what was going on about her subject of study while she was away. Impressed by the creative use of local resources, her love for sharing knowledge and her belief in learning through experiences, she co-created the Sustainable Festival. A 4-day educational not-for-profit event dedicated to the celebration of emerging sustainable design practices, held at the luscious Botanic Gardens in the heart of Buenos Aires. Ana Lisa cannot help being an environmental activist and is interested on discovering new eco-design concepts and learning about the design of systems. She is a vegetarian who loves riding her folding-bike, playing hand-ball, japanese culture, making her own clothes, gardening and cats. She now works independently doing all sorts of things related to critical sustainable design thinking and practices: she is a consultant for big and small brands, a curator of exhibitions, workshops organizer and now a contributing writer for Inhabitat!
