Alex Dimitriou has been working in cultural production in Berlin and Athens since 2007, producing film and performance festivals that deal with queer and body politics, activism and LGBTQI+ visibility.
Alex was the production manager for the film production of 3x3x6 by conceptual artist Shu Lea Cheang, which was showcased in the Venice Biennale Arte 2019 at the Pavilion of Taiwan. In Athens Alex was one of the curators and managers of Sound Acts: a sound and performance festival that engaged the local queer arts community and brought them together with international artists, making queer political performance visible to a more mainstream audience in Greece for the first time.
Through START Alex strengthened abilities for community building, and - inspired by a passion for cycling - created safe and inclusive spaces for queer, trans* folk and women in Rhodes and Athens, where people exchanged, created art and fixed their bikes together. In the future Alex aspires to create the first physical feminist makerspace in Greece.
