We are pleased to announce that we have welcomed Alicja Peszkowska to the team, as our Engagement Lead. In this role, Alicja will oversee the strategic and operational engagement of Open Future with its primary stakeholders as well as manage our digital communication.
Alicja’s interdisciplinary background, coupled with her extensive experience working with digital culture, digital rights, and civic technology, makes her an excellent addition to our team. Alicja’s track record includes setting up participation and storytelling for social organizations (including TechSoup, Outriders, Creative Commons, and the Engine Room), cultural institutions (Statens Museum for Kunst and Vi lever på Polsk Gallery in Denmark, among others), and companies (such as the LEGO Group and Unilever). She holds an MA in Cultural Studies from the University of Warsaw, where she specialized in audiovisual culture. Alicja speaks Polish, English, Spanish, and Danish and is based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
At Open Future, we believe in a social change strategy that includes strong sense-making and narrative building, around the concepts of the digital commons and the digital public sphere. On this basis, we build our strategic advocacy portfolio. Alicja’s focus on language, inclusiveness, and strategic communication will be pivotal in driving these efforts forward. We are happy to have her on board.
