Director of Subtitle, which she founded together with Paul Holdsworth and Daniela Garcia del Pomar in 2013; a platform and network for artists, authors, curators and cultural operators engage with explorative artistic working models in intercultural and cross lingual context. Subtitle is inspired by new media, performance, interventions and participatory art in public realm. By merging two traditionally opposed concepts of spectatorship and authorship Subtitle challenge the conventional role of the audience and traditional concept of distribution of knowledge. In order to operate independently from institutional funding at artistic, cultural, scientific and institutional level, members are both part of the collaborative group and produce independent artistic work and cultural projects. Subtitle aims to contribute alternative strategies of sharing experiences and knowledge within global - local context.

Together with Efrat Stempler and Christina Burger she founded Todanke (2013) association promoting Hebrew language, intercultural and crosslingual activities.
