ANA MARIA ATIENZA : THE COMMUNICATOR

Born: October 4th, 1977

Tucumán, Argentina

HIGHLIGHTS:

“I am a militant for human rights, supporting the globally renowned Memory, Truth & Justice Argentine transitional justice process.”

Ana María has helped create audiovisual tools which explain the “whys” of every new technique shared with rural communities (e.g. farming techniques, solar energy, etc) through CDESCO—a nonprofit foundation that promotes development in rural areas. A specific audiovisual course, tailored made for each problem, is given to small groups, with strong practical training, in their own environment. Thus, the overall educational process respects each groups pace, languages, cultural codes and previous knowledge.

As the founder of O-IRSE, she uses plays to support the struggle of imprisoned women for their rights. She then brings her documentary filmmaking skills to develop audiovisual tools used in the realization of various educational, informational and documentary audiovisual programs for many popular organizations.
She currently plays volleyball for Avellaneda Central, a neighborhood club.
