Dimitra is passionate about creating learning experiences that bring people together and focus on well-being, dialogue, transformation and play. She is a photo artist and educator from Athens, where she currently lives after 6 years in the USA, holding a BA in Painting (Thessaloniki) and an MFA in Photography (Philadelphia, PA).
She has worked in cultural management, organizing exhibitions and events since early in her career, and cultivated her love for exploration, participation and sharing primarily through teaching. In both roles, she often finds herself in diverse learning environments: from a school in a Greek children’s hospital to a top-ranked research university, or from her START Fellowship in Germany to her project with cancer-related NGOs in Athens. Strengthening her plans and skills in the sociocultural field, through invaluable opportunities like START, are key to Dimitra’s aim to positively impact a growing number of people affected by cancer.
