What is the source of my creativity? What's my artistic process? Why share my artwork? How do I curate my stories? What is genreless storytelling? |

Divergent polymath, culture architect, and multi-hyphenate artist Julián Esteban Torres López applies his 25+ years of global experience in numerous fields to help organizations, changemakers, and artists explore, imagine, transform, innovate, and create beyond socially constructed boundaries.

The Nasiona

Julián is the founder of The Nasiona, a movement and multi-media platform that centers, elevates, and amplifies the personal stories of those Otherized by systems of oppression and dominant cultures.

We believe that the subjective can offer its own reality and reveal truths some facts cannot discover.​

Our work centers decolonization, liberation, empowerment, healing, and transformation. Through our magazinepodcastpublishing housementorship program, music series, live events, along with other initiatives and partnerships, we strive to humanize the Other.

The Nasiona Podcast

Renowned for his trauma-informed explorations of the nature-nurture of being, Julián and his The Nasiona Podcast guests examine existential concerns with compassion, care, and nuance through a decolonial prism.

These are engaging, in-depth, long-form conversations with creatives, changemakers, experts, culture architects, and justice activists that investigate our humanity, creativity, and journeys toward liberation.

Conscious Thrive

As the managing director of consulting and strategy at Conscious Thrive, Julián strives to bring back the HUMAN at the center of business relationships. We help you embody diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging from an inside-out approach — holding the whole human and individual as part of the whole.

We work with companies that have already committed to doing the work and have started implementing strategies and initiatives toward their commitment to creating a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment within their companies and external influences.

We offer consulting, workshops & training, and coaching.
