Born in Slovakia, Hana came to Greece in 2008 as a European volunteer (EVS) and, magically, has lived there since! She has always been active in art and music, and combines this with her international youth work. After graduating from the University in Nitra, Slovakia (teaching Visual Art and Music) she worked for six years at the Art and Music School in Holíč, Slovakia. Since 2009 she has taken part in several sociocultural projects, in the framework of non-formal education, and has worked as a mentor, leader and project coordinator in this field (projects funded by ERASMUS+ etc). Since 2013 she has been working in rural areas, poor in the variety of cultural opportunities on offer. Her passion for this work never lets her give up; she continues to believe in and act for changes towards an inclusive society.
By taking the unique opportunity of the START Program in 2018, Hana acted on her motivation to make the most of chances, gain new impulses and deepen her project management skills in the sociocultural sector. Back in Greece, she uses her experience to build her work and her next project is a pilot initiative with long term potential and community impact.
