Liliana Torpey
Development Associate

Liliana was born in Berkeley, CA and grew up in Oakland. She has always believed that the arts are necessary for our liberation, survival, and joy. Liliana writes poetry and has published her work in university and other journals, and performs her work occasionally at open mics. She has also performed personalized, on-the-spot typewriter poetry at events and for individuals. She is inspired by poets like Khalil Gibran, Staceyann Chin, Raúl Zurita, and, of course, Maya Angelou.

Liliana has also trained in and practiced the participatory theater technique Theater of the Oppressed. In 2017, she participated in an intensive training at the Center for Theater of the Oppressed in Rio de Janeiro and performed street theater in the Tijuana/San Diego Borderland with the San Diego-based Magpie Collective.

Liliana received her B.A. in International Studies: Literature from UC San Diego in 2018. She feels supremely lucky to have started working at Creativity Explored with such a vibrant and compassionate creative community.
