While finishing her MA internship in CACT, she participated in NEON’s first exhibition in Thessaloniki, “Flying over the Abyss”, as an assistant curator.

As a result to this residency, she had the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with Katerina Gregos (curator) and Katerina Zacharopoulou (director of educational program), gaining experience in terms of curatorial and educational aspects in contemporary art. After the curatorial residency, she moved to Athens, working as an idependent curator.
