Irma Guadalupe Martínez Hermoso

San Luis Potosí, Mexico

CEO, Three Monkeys Teatro (3MT)

Irma is passionate about art. She studied drama and uses her knowledge to benefit girls and adolescents with her company Three Monkeys Teatro. She creates collective spaces to reflect on the different social issues that impact girls and women, including gender-based violence. She deeply understands the contexts and realities of girls in disadvantaged positions. Recently, she finished the pilot phase of her project “Alas y palabras, taller de radio-relato” (“Wings and Words, Radio-Storytelling Workshop”) with residents from the Casa de Jesús shelter for girls, providing the girls with tools for resilience through expression, collaboration, and communication skills that originate in art.
