Eva Enriquez

Teaching Artist, Larkin Street Youth Services

Eva is an artist and educator in San Francisco. Spanish culture and its unique forms of social relationships is the root of her artwork. In Spain, everyday life is full of meaningful interactions with family, friends, strangers and its surrounding environments. Those interactions with people and environment become a source of knowledge and contribute to develop a sense of place. Being distant from such everyday experiences, my artwork has become a way of linking with cultural roots and an avenue to connect with new and vast communities.

​ Her work involves participatory interactions with audiences and site-specific material production incorporating social and environmental aspects of my surroundings. As she develops her practice, she finds it essential to establish a relationship with the younger generations through education. Her goal is to facilitate the process of developing a sense of place. She calls this process social weaving.
