Co-founder of Collective East ( 
Collective East is an independent, artist-run collaborative practice promoting the work of cultural practitioners from the CEE region. Founded by artist Anya Kashina (b.1993, Yaroslavl, Russia) and independent curator & writer Borbala Komjathy (b.1993, Budapest, Hungary), C.E. was born out of a desire for more connection, collaboration and support between creatives of Central and Eastern European background based in the U.K. We are currently raising money for the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian appeal through an online sale of artworks here.
