Myrto lives in Thessaloniki, a city she recently moved to, attracted by its potential livability. She has been working as an audiovisual producer and filmmaker for over 16 years, dedicating most of them on civic engagement. Since her studies in Communications (Leicester University, UK), Documentary Filmmaking (Pompeu Fabra, ES) and Digital Filmmaking (NYU SCPS), she has been experimenting with innovative elements of visual storytelling, aimed at turning passive audiences into actors of change.
Believing with (an absurd?) certainty that Greek cities can become sustainable, in 2012 she founded City of Errors; a social enterprise, spreading civic awareness through new media formats such as the cross-media platform Life in A City Full of Errors
In 2019 Myrto created Drastic, a media company based in Thessaloniki and joined the START program with the project Civic Visionaries; a series of civic awareness campaigns that harness the potential of disruptive marketing to give Greece’s social innovators and their calls to action the visibility they need and deserve.
