441: Telling Stories Through Art & Curating with Jasmine Castillo

Today's interview is with Jasmine Castillo. Growing up in New York City Jasmine learned how very quickly things happen. This has been the catalyst behind Jasmine's work of creating, refining, toning and shaping uncommon stories not found in mainstream media.


Her love for the arts comes through in her film production skills where she is known as a no nonsense producer. That love also led her to launching an amazing interactive art exhibition company called Escape Artists Collective which showcases interactive experiences with unconventional artistry by bringing you a unique platform of creatives that use materials from wood, metals, special effects and more. Her curated platform is an experience that brings audiences behind the scenes into the creative process taking them from observer to participant in the artist journey.


Jasmine approaches each project with a familial sense and her own philosophy of “When you’re part of my team, it makes me part of yours so we’re in this together.”


This is the drive that keeps her crew, artists and audience to stay connected.


We discuss:

  • Her love for Puerto Rico
  • How & why she became an art & storytelling
  • Her thoughts on Wonder Woman & Ms. Marvel
