As a transdisciplinary cultural worker, my practice is socially performative, exploring sound in an expanded and often dematerialised field through archives, conversations, interventions, hidden herstrories and historical amnesias. In all these areas my work is collaborative, seeking to balance the needs of the individual and the collective through anti-racist, queer feminist paradigms.
Formally, I hold a PhD in Music (2015) with the research Composing Paradoxes: Feminist Process in Sound Arts and Experimental Musics through which I analyse socio-political differences and lived experiences of sociopolitical differences and their manifestation in the making of sound arts and experimental musics; MA Public Art (2007) establishing collaborative artist-run-initiative, Plateau_589 Melbourne, Australia, exhibiting audiovisual interventions; BA Sonic Arts (2005) transforming a love of music to a life-long practice of social composition.
I have worked as a Digital Officer at the Women’s Resource Centre London (2016-17); Researcher (ongoing) and Lecturer (2010-2016) at University of the Arts London; web editor and Her Noise Archivist at Electra London (2010-2014). I co-curate at AMOQA (Athens) a not-for-profit queer feminist space that focuses upon the development of specific queer aesthetics & the nurturing of safe queer feminist spaces for our community, with Aphrodite* feminist film festival and Sound Acts in Greece. I am a collaborative co-founder of Sound:Gender:Feminism:Activism, a network and event series bringing together academics, artists, musicians and performers since 2012. My current project is AveloSpace, a collaborative queer makerspace in Athens, Greece where we make experiences & experiment with critical social forms to find sustainable ways to bring us together and keep us alive. www.crisap.org | hernoise.org | amoqa.net | www.feministfrequencies.org
