About Agata

There is nothing you cannot do in a story.

There is nothing a story cannot do for you.

From journalist, war correspondent and video artist, to stage director, filmmaker and screenwriter I’ve always followed the story. I’ve studied Human Sciences, Communication and Creative Writing in Rome, Screenwriting and Storytelling in London and New York and I can’t stop educating myself – at the present in Neuroscience.

My first job on set was that of the Location Manager in Italy and Greece. Several films and commercials later I’ve decided to move to London and focusing on Screenwriting, where I’ve started almost immediately teaching the craft of writing.

Working constantly as a reader and screenwriter in London and in Greece, the offer of the position of the head of screenwriting department on the production company Stefi brought me back to Athens, where simultaneously I’ve started directing for Theater ( 22 murders, The Vagina Monologues )

For the last 10 years I am working as a Writer’s & Directors’ Coach & Storytelling Consultant, Speakers Coach and Creative Mentor. My talks, workshops and masterclasses have been presented in various events and cities around Europe and in 2017 I gave a Ted Talk in TEDXKomotini about The power of Storytelling with the title «Time For Heroes». As Screenplay Consultant, I’ve collaborate with the Westerdals Film School of Oslo in Norway, with Cosmote TV and various production companies and I’ve contributed to the production of feature and documentary movies – most recent the production of “1968”from Tassos Boulmetis. Between 2012-2016 I was Educational Curator of International Film Festival of Patmos, the Screenwriter Contest of the Festival and the Documentary Workshop “Filmmaking Updated” that led to the production of the movie “Life in the Borderlands”. As a curator and educator, I’ve participated and developed Pitching Lab programmes in various film festivals.

Since 2017, I am collaborating with TEDxAthens, as a Storytelling Speakers Coach, aiming to unfold the essence of each shared story from the stage.

I’ve created “The Storytelling Gene” as an online platform for research and application of different storytelling technics, where I’ve also developed educational programmes that have been presented in various institutions and festivals. (Goethe, Stegi, Panteio, Olympia Festival, Patmos Festival, Ote Museum, Athens film festival.)

Since 2018 I started as a co-founder the Own Your Story Team, where alongside two other Storytelling Coaches, I dive deeper into the functions of everyday narrative. Through my work, I’ve discovered the impact stories have in our whole life and I’ve started to merge neuroscience into the creative process of storytelling.

Behind every story there is another story. The most basic human primal need of understanding who we are. This is what we are working for and that’s why art serves the story we will always need.

Agata is a fog destroyer! Every time I need clarity in an idea or project she always comes with the best insight and advice.
Antony Glaros, Director/Screenwriter
Agata taught me the ways to tame, understand, appreciate and communicate my ideas. Finally, my ideas take on flesh and blood and through them I evolve.
