Katherine Heid is network manager of RESEO, the European Network for Opera and Dance Education, since 2009.
Katherine graduated in psychology and political sciences, specialising in intercultural psychology and creativity. She then worked for the events department of the Franco-German Youth Office in Paris for six years, focusing especially on cross-cultural projects in the fields of film and music.
She then pursued her career at the German Youth Ministry in the department for international youth policy, and for IJAB, the German International Youth Work Service. Katherine subsequently worked for the Council of Europe, where she was responsible for activities in the framework of the “all different – all equal” campaign, as well as youth conferences and practical seminars concerning human rights, refugees issues, diversity and interreligious dialogue, before being appointed to her current position.
Her work for RESEO now links this background in international youth work, human rights and politics with her practical experience in the field of arts, as a former professional dancer.
