Dimitra Tsiaouskoglou was born and raised in Thessaloniki. After majoring in History and spending a few years working in education, her passion for art led her to complete her postgraduate studies in Art History (Thessaloniki) and Curating (France). She moved to Athens in 2013, where she’s been actively involved in the local art scene. An avid lifelong learner and intensely curious, she loves participating in international workshops to deepen her cultural management skills and expand her network.
She has diverse work experience in the contemporary art sector; from research, writing, mediation and education to production and curating. In addition, she considers her previous experience in administrative positions at education and community-related businesses as equally important to her development.
Her experience as an art mediator (Documenta 14, NEON Organization) and in community arts projects, have fueled her passion for arts practice that functions as an agent of social change. She therefore took up her studies of Socially Engaged Practices for Museums and Galleries at Leicester University (UK) and also grabbed the opportunities offered by the START Fellowship Program (Germany, 2018) to gain hands-on experience of art as a tool for community wellbeing and apply this knowledge to her projects in Greece.
