Zina holds extensive experience in project coordination and event curation with arts and cultural organisations in London and Athens. She is currently developing social engagement projects in her home country of Greece, alongside her creative sound and music practice. Her academic background includes topics related to Acoustic Ecology and Medical Ethnomusicology (MA, Goldsmiths), which have solidified her belief that sound and music are powerful mechanisms for positive social transformation and fusing community bonds.
The weakness of support networks in Greece for people with learning difficulties has urged Zina to discover ways to engage a neurodiverse population through musicking. Through establishing this initiative, she hopes for further access to music, as well as spurring self-advocacy and social empowerment.
Programs such as START (Germany, 2018) have equipped her with the confidence and expertise to pursue her vision of a dynamic inclusive community, that in turn can motivate pivotal changes within society.
