In her work as digital art and storytelling practioner, Dr Alicja Pawluczuk (AKA hy_stera) explores the intersections of digital humanities, feminism, and social justice.
Over the last decade, she has collaborated with international development organisations (e.g. the United Nations, the Council of Europe, UNESCO), cultural and education organisations (e.g. University of Edinburgh, Liverpool University, Economic and Social Research Council) exploring the process of participatory meaning-making through the use of arts, everyday objects and digital media.
As an artist, activist and researcher, she aims to amplify the voices of some of the most marginalised communities. In her personal art, as an #endosister, she pays particular attention to the hidden stories of medical misogyny, invisible disability, menstrual justice and feminism.
