Catarina Gomes

Manicómio Director


Catarina Gomes works with media, innovation and journalism. In the past 10 years she has been around the world developing projects in human rights, sexual rights, and environment in Southeast Asia, Latin America, Africa and China. The common thread is always innovation, either technological - digital, virtual reality or augmented reality-, or theme based disruption. The latest VR project she was part of - “Home After War”- was part of the official selection of the Venice and New York film festivals, and won the award for best immersive arts at South by SouthWest. She’s now the director of the soon-to-be-launched MANICÓMIO magazine, the first magazine in the world entirely produced by people who have or have had mental health issues. Catarina holds a double-degree masters by the University of Aarhus, Denmark, and the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
