Manuela Luterbacher aka Manu Ella Elaah
I currently work as a cultural agent for creative schools in Bern. As cultural agents, we try to implement art and culture more in the everyday school life.
I studied post-industrial and process design at HyperWerk in Basel and Psychology at the University of Fribourg. Since 2012 I am working as a volonteer in different cultural places. 2016 I started to invest more time in cultural management, like founding the Perform Perform Festival with four other young women.
My points of interest are people in general, their behavor, their thoughts towards prejudices, social interactions, innovation, contemporary issues, movement and development. My artistic work therefore focuses mainly in creating human encounters - creating possibilities and space for meeting, exchange, discussions and reflections about different aspects of life. My artistic work is usually multidisciplinary, because I enjoy the mix of different life and work experiences and I like to be confronted with artistic views or themes I don't know yet.
All in all: I am an empathic hair-dresser who loves music and likes to encourage other people.
