Ana Rosa Baena is a translator, an intercultural communication practitioner and researcher, with an interest in social enterprise and ethical business. She has been living in the UK for seventeen years and witnessed the way migrant communities feel rootless or integrated into the community.

She has spent the last year conducting her research on national identity formation and found that the feeling of being always on the margin may vary as a function of the emotional baggage, the social perceptions or the material aspects that affect our lives

She started working with MELA a social enterprise that works alongside people to creatively co-design public spaces that are safe fun and convivial exploring different ways we can get people talking, re-build trust, dispel prejudices and form new creative relationships in culturally diverse communities to empower change and leadership to address the root causes of conflict and build community cohesion. we do this by researching the role of "place" in meeting the social needs of diverse communities and their identities.
