In an effort to disseminate findings of my research to academic audiences, share my experiences with non-academic publics, and give back to the community, I take part in a range of public engagement activities. For example, I participate in conferences, symposia and public discussions, I get voluntarily involved in the activity of cultural companies, non-for-profit organisations and social enterprises, and I contribute to academic services.
I tend to present my research work at international marketing, arts and cultural studies/management/policy conferences, such as the Association for Consumer Research Conference (ACRC), Consumer Culture Theory Conference (CCTC), International Conference on Arts and Cultural Management (AIMAC), Transformative Consumer Research Conference (TCR), European Marketing Association Conference (EMAC), Royal Geographical Society Conference (RBS, IBG), Dance Studies Association Conference (CORD + SDHS), Academy of Marketing Conference (AM), Place Management and Branding Conference (IPBA).
I have also participated as a PhD student in workshops, seminars and masterclasses, such as the Canon of Classics, Birkbeck’s Critical Theory Summer School and various Interpretive and Consumer Culture Theory Doctoral Seminars.
This year, I am aiming at taking part at the International Conference on Arts and Cultural Management (AIMAC), the Consumer Culture Theory Conference (CCTC) and the International Visual and Performing Arts Conference (ATINER).
I often participate in public discussions for non-academic audiences on the subjects of my interest, I offer courses on arts marketing and entrepreneurship to independent artists, and I work with industry professionals for public events, presentations and wider collaborations. I also invite industry professionals to the academic classes and programmes I lead, I participate in arts community projects, and I take part in networks that support cultural entrepreneurship, policy and diplomacy. Furthermore, I participate in different organising committees that present talented emerging artists in London and in Athens, such as the Hellenic Institute of Cultural Diplomacy.
I am a Fellow at the Royal Society of Arts (RSA), a member of the Sadler’s Wells and a member of the Association for Consumer Research (ACR), the Consumer Culture Theory Consortium (CCTC), the European Marketing Academy (EMA), the European Network on Cultural Management and Policy (ENCATC), the Transformative Consumer Research (TCR), the Academy of Marketing (AM) and the Royal Geographical Society (RGS). I have presented at and reviewed for leading cultural management, marketing and arts conferences and journals, including ACR, EMAC, CCTC, TCR, RGS, AM, Social Enterprise Journal. I am currently participating in the Journal of Consumer Research (JCR) Reviewer Trainee programme.
