Natalia Linares
New Economy Coalition

As a long-time cultural advocate and artist organizer, Natalia "conrazón" Linares creates visibility for independent artists of color who are rebalancing the world. Hailing from Staten Island, New York City, and raised by an immigrant Cuban mother and Colombian father, she is a digital nomad splitting her time between New York City and Western Massachusetts. With over a decade in the music business working with artists from Manu Chao to Bomba Estereo to Los Rakas to Zuzuka Poderosa and festivals like NYC's SummerStage, Santiago de Cuba's MANANA and the Afro-Latino Festival of New York City, she's worn various hats as a manager, producer, publicist, organizer, promoter and more. She is also a proud collective member of Sacramento, CA's Sol Collective, a center dedicated to arts, culture and activism. Natalia now works with New Economy Coalition to find sustainable and emancipatory alternatives to our world's economic systems through communications, media and cultural organizing.
