Maria Adela Konomi
Adela is a cultural manager based in Athens. Currently, she works as a gallery manager for State of Concept, an independent institution in Athens aiming to foster the appreciation of local and international contemporary art. She holds a BA in Economics but her passion for arts and culture led her to Rotterdam where she was inducted into the sociocultural field via a Master’s program in Cultural Economics & Entrepreneurship. Through her experience in exhibition productions and projects coordination, she has developed her managerial skills towards cultural institutions and created a solid network both in Greece and Europe.
She is particularly interested in investigating and developing practices and sustainable economic models that could be applied in the cultural sector, with a special focus on independent initiatives and DIY culture. Aiming to raise sustainability awareness and foster creativity, Adela is committed to put her project “OnMaterials” on the cultural map of Athens.
