Irina Contreras is a Los Angeles born and bred interdisciplinary artist, cultural producer and consultant. She has worked for over ten years at the intersections of the arts, education and radical pedagogy within institutional and community based platforms. She is the founder of the 12 year-old project The Miracle Bookmobile, and has pursued an art practice alongside her lifelong dedication to social and restorative justice practices. She earned her dual Master’s degree at California College of the Arts with an MFA in Social Practice and MA in Visual and Critical Studies. Additionally, she has done coursework in UCLA’s Social Research, Urban Planning and Public Policy Department as well as having worked for the San Francisco’s Public Health Department for two years. In 2006, Irina co-founded Night Kitchen as a women owned and run catering, healthful and wellness focused project. Eventually Night Kitchen expanded to include and center QTPOC and WOC centered affordable and sliding scale consulting, leadership development and production. Since then, Irina has focused on expanding her knowledge base within alternative economic structures including giving circles, fundraising and more. Her knowledge of cooperative and collective arts, business structures and strategizing comes from years of love and work for the various communities she has been a part of. She has strong roots in Oakland, where she has lived off and on since 1997. When Irina isn’t busy working on projects, she can be seen taking long walks throughout LA at sunset with her six month old bebe in tow.
