MIRANDA AGUILAR

Miranda Aguilar is a queer Filipina artist, living and working in Western Sydney. While completing her Masters in Public Relations and Advertising at UNSW, Miranda pursued her artistic practice primarily through the Curious Creators program.

In 2016, Miranda was the lead facilitator of the Curious Works Writers Group, where she led the other writers in the development of their scripts and worked on developing her own script, Into the Closet. The script was picked up by PWA for New Play Development. The writer’s group led to the creation of the Las Rosas web-series in 2017, of which Miranda was the showrunner and one of the lead writers. She brought back the writing group in 2018, and is continuing to lead other young writers as its lead facilitator.

Miranda is also an enthusiastic community volunteer. She volunteers with Youth Action’s Outburst, a Western Sydney-based youth group, and was a part of the team that created the Friend2Friend program, a youth-led mental health workshop, which she has given at schools and community centres. As she continues her creative career, Miranda wants to continue combining her artistic practice with community engagement and give them the same opportunities that she was given.
