UbuconEU Sintra 2019 speaker: Ksenia
Ksenia is a polyglot and a culture-tech enthusiast. She speaks eight languages while constantly learning new ones in the quest to adopt new thinking patterns and read poetry in the original.
Being a self-proclaimed culture geek, she has created a minimalist, privacy-first app called Invisible City that helps people get offline for some art and culture. Currently she is expanding Invisible City to become a platform where artists can find and book venues for their gigs easily, perform more and get paid fairl She loves flamenco and practices its steps every day before breakfast.
