Miret Rodriguez is the creative director of Curated Tastes and is the former VP of VLACC. She holds a MBA in art and culture management from the Superior School of Commerce in Paris and a BA Major in Art History from UBC. Miret relies on art and the artists that make it to navigate through cultural dislocation and hybridity. Since 2020, Miret has been interviewing Latinx artists in Canada about their immigration stories and their ways of expressing their experiences through art. This led her into curating Volver (to return, to become) in 2022 at Cityscape Community Artspace in North Vancouver.
