Dimitra Tsiaouskoglou was born and raised in Thessaloniki. After majoring in History and spending a few years working in education, she continued 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 (International Summer Academy of Fine Arts - Salzburg, NEON Curatorial Exchange, Transforming Future Museums - British Council, Cultural Management Academy - Goethe Institut, et.al).
She has a diverse work experience within the contemporary art sector from research and writing, mediation and education to production and curating. She considers her previous experience in administrative positions at education and community-related businesses, equally important for her development.
Her experience as an art mediator (Documenta 14, NEON Organization) and her involvement in community art projects have fueled her passion towards art practices which function as agents of social change. In this respect, she’s taken up studying Socially Engaged Practices for Museums and Galleries (Leicester University, UK). In 2018 she was a fellow of START – Create Cultural Change, a program of the Robert Bosch Stiftung, conducted in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki and the German Association of Sociocultural Centers, supported by the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation and the Bodossaki Foundation.
