Lara Costafreda

Illustrator & Coordinator, Casa Nostra Casa Vostra

Lara Costafreda is a freelance illustrator and a co-coordinator of Casa Nostra Casa Vostra (Our house is your house), the organisation behind the march in Barcelona last February in support of refugees that over 160,000 people took part in. Having worked in fashion and illustration all her life, Lara and a group of others working in communication and design travelled to Greece to visit the refugee camps there, and on returning, felt they had to denounce what they had seen. This led them to set up Casa Nostra Casa Vostra, which is sharing stories of refugee stuck in Greek camps—’halted lives’—and campaigning for better treatment and allowing more refugees to come to Spain.

Must-watch video (turn subtitles on for ENG): 

What if we use utopias as a verb?

For IAM Weekend 17 we will go deeper into the meaning of utopias, with imagination and skepticism, understanding how they can evolve beyond contemporary dreams and help us navigate the uncertainty of our times.

The main stage will feature 30+ speakers distributed in 5 sessions (single-track conference format) plus 10+ workshops led by our learning partners developing the key insights from the talks. Our serendipitous agenda will also include several side-events including parties, dinners, screenings, special projects and installations.
