josemar Gonzalez Lizarraga  ARtist,  DESIGNER, CREATIVE DIRECTOR, COMPOSER
I am a Multi-Disciplinary Artist & Community Organizer with extensive experience in both the Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, California regions. I currently work with various independent artistic organizations on both sides of the border to help educate and enrich using the arts as a means of communication. The majority of my work deals with documentation, storytelling, and deconstruction of human experiences through the use of video, photography, installation, audio, technology, and various creative mediums.

I joined The AjA Project in 2011, a City-Heights based non-profit that works with diverse communities of San Diego; there I worked as a Media Artist and later became Creative Director, where I supported in the development of innovative and creative projects including the California Arts Council Innovations and Intersections Grant to further the organizations mission and growth up until Fall of 2020. In 2014, I founded PASE Music, a concert production company focused on creating the best experiences for music lovers in the city, and  with it created a bi-national music and arts festival in Tijuana, Mexico that brings together artist communities from both sides of the Mexico-US border. I am co-founder and current member of BorderClick, a participatory art collective founded in 2016 that workshops with Transborder communities creating a digital living archive of Transborder experiences through the use of media arts, education and performance; supported by the California Arts Council, California Humanities, and The California Endowment. I have shown work in Mexico, the United States, Japan, and Germany. 
I was awarded an established artist fellowship by the California Arts Council in 2021 - 2022.
