Carolina Rubio MacWright is an artist, immigration attorney and activist. She was born in Bogota, Colombia where she lived until, at the age of 20, she needed a safer place to call home.
She attended art school and law school in the United States, and throughout was active in her local community. She has worked as an immigration attorney in Miami, Oklahoma and New York City. Her experience as an attorney opened her eyes to the realities of the broken American legal system. She believes that art is often the most powerful way of explaining life. She has thus mixed her law and art experiences into performances and workshops that serve a dual purpose - empowering vulnerable communities and educating more powerful ones.
From campaign work for non-profits to performing public art pieces, she believes anything is possible when inspiring ideas and passionate people come together.
She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
