In 2018 she created #Digital Stories Berlin, an innovative educational project devoted to digital storytelling, giving prominence to the development of 21st-century skills within non-formal youth and adult education. In her role as a digital storyteller, she is using film as both an artistic and educational tool, which is conducive to the rethinking and examining of the common spaces of the future. Responding to her need for creative experiments in the field of art and science, she is especially interested in research on how a poetical approach to digital storytelling deepens our understanding of spatial belonging and helps us devise future identities. In 2020 she became a founder of a digital storytelling platform named Digital Stories Europe with a working hub in Berlin. dsE is focused on organizing digital storytelling workshops and courses, online or on-site, intended for Art Institutions, Artists and Creative Professionals.
