After completing my degree, I worked as a director of a project for the Memorial Democràtic, a department of the autonomous government of Catalonia which works towards the recovery of the historical memory of the victims of the Franco Dictatorship. The project was about the nineteenth century local society ‘Casa del Poble’, a Catalanist Republican and left-wing political and social organisation. As a result of this research, I co-directed Davant del mar, a documentary which includes interviews with testimonies, and I am still the curator of its historical archive and library. I also coordinated another research project related to the industrialisation process, the Spanish Civil War and the trade unions of the 1970s in my home town. It was a study of Blanes society through testimonies from the old textile factory SAFA. The most part of the interviews from both projects can be consulted nowadays in the ‘Banc Audiovisual de Testimonis’ of the Generalitat, an online public archive of oral history.
In 2010, I moved to Buenos Aires where I took a course in hand making books with cardboard in La Boca district with ‘Eloísa Cartonera’, a social and cooperative publishing project. Afterwards, my first poetry book Aprender a dibujar el viento (2009) was published and awarded with the Poetry Award Rei en Jaume in Calvià (Mallorca).
Before moving to Birmingham, I worked as a creative writing teacher, as an author of didactic materials and as a secondary teacher in a high school. I also produced the independent film El cor del pi negre (2016) directed by Jaume Pujadas, which was released in Sitges at the International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia. In 2017, I moved to Birmingham to work at the University of Birmingham as a teacher of Catalan Culture and Language with the support of the Xarxa Llull, the international public network of Catalan Studies abroad. I work with Dr Elisenda Marcer in the School of Modern Languages and we are responsible for the Catalan modules.
Since 2013, I have been part of the Popular Unity Candidacy (CUP), a pro-Catalan independence assembly-based political party that works to build a country that is socialist, environmentally sustainable and free from the domination of patriarchy. As a feminist activist, I was part of Sa Pedra Foguera, a Catalan local feminist group, and in Birmingham I have participated in the Women’s Strike Assembly. In 2019, I also joined the University and College Union.
