Dimitra grew up in Crete, Greece. She studied Greek Philology in Athens and pursued two Masters in the UK, in Cultural Studies and Modern and Contemporary Art. She has three years of working experience in art galleries and cultural organizations focusing on running art exhibitions and organizing events. She has a theoretical expertise on community-based art practices and is interested in ways to engage teenagers in contemporary art practices. She has supported migrant teenagers by giving language lessons and organizing educational activities in England and Scotland; she would like to expand on that in public museums in Greece. In her project in Lesvos, she aims to activate the educational program of a local modern art museum and bring together youngsters from different backgrounds. Her vision is to turn small museums into contemporary forums where dialogue, self-expression and creativity are put into action.
