Right now organising Latvia national stands and culture programs in international Book fairs, working as a project manager of Latvian-Russian multimedia artist group "ORBITA" and actively participating in culture life.

I am based in St. Petersburg, working as freelance trainer in non-formal education. My trainings are about intercultural leaning, stereotypes and discrimination, as well as conflict resolution. I also do skills' trainings about communication tools, project management tools, team work, learning tools. Besides that, I also moderate strategic team meetings for organizations.
In my work for Bridge it! I value very much the possibility to contribute to the development of my home region, which is actually bigger than Piter (I was born in Vilnius, grew up in Pskov). I also want to support development of young people, to show them other perspectives, let them believe more in themselves and in the future of the Baltic Sea region.
In my free time I like to learn und to practice different body activities: dances, yoga, authentic movement.

See you at one of Bridge It seminars ;)
I'm back living in Estonia after working and studying abroad for some time. My work experience varies quite a lot, but bridging link to all of them is management, coordination and strategic development.
My educational background comes from urban studies, as I just finished my Masters degree in Urban Governance in Tallinn University. My focus there was on linking together urban planning and health management. Aside to that, I'm very much interested in critical thinking, social constructivism and civic education. I also love to sing, dance and play music as a hobby.
I am a culture manager in Riga, Latvia. Therefore, my everyday life is connected with smaller and bigger scale culture and art projects. Besides that I am currently studying Anthropology, since I am into understanding different sociocultural processes of the society. My topics of interests are cross-cultural communication, production of cultural meanings, identity, construction of boundaries, diversity and gender.
I am also interested in arts, especially theatre. Therefore, I enjoy to use and to participate in artistic, creative methods in non-formal education. In general, I think the best thing in non-formal education is that one can discover answers in the process and therefore, it is a great learning experience.
