Chryssa Kontogeorgopoulou

Chryssa K

Born and raised in Athens, Greece, and holding a MA in Archaeology and a PhD in Byzantine studies, Chryssa boasts significant experience in the fields of research (digitalisation of the Byzantine-era monuments in Attica by appointment of the Hellenic National Foundation of Researches), teaching ("Plato's Academy") and hands-on guiding in Greek, French and Spanish. An avid admirer of the Attican landscape, its evolution in time and its particularities, Chryssa brings to life original concepts and narratives with a special focus on paths and itineraries relatively unknown to the public.

Chryssa has also worked for the Greek National Broadcaster (ERT) in the areas of production, organisation, and content for art and culture projects related to Attica. She has written lyrics for famous Greek composers and directors (D. Papadimitriou, M. Eleftheriou and M. Gkanas among them) and published two poetry collections in collaboration with the Ioannis F. Kostopoulos Institution (Melani editions, 2005-2007, “ Flowers of salt” and “The Strow Gold”, which have been presented in Greece and abroad) securing her a place in the anthology of the contemporary Greek poets - ed. Gavrilidis 2007.

Chryssa is a state-certified guide with a license in Greek, French and Spanish.
