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 is a member of the FYTINI anti-art collective in Athens that for three years created, curated and produced 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.
Alex has a BA in Management and Technology and is currently pursuing an MA in Gender Studies. Through START Alex will strengthen abilities for community building, and - inspired by a passion for cycling - will create safe and inclusive spaces for queers, trans* folk and women in rural areas of Greece, where these groups can exchange, create art and share a bicycle workshop space as a means of empowerment.
Alex is currently part of the curatorial team of the Athens Festival of Queer Performance, a DIY symposium bringing together performance artists, video artists and academics, taking place in October 2019 in Athens.
