Vida Vončina

Vida is a critical pedagogue and a sociologist of culture committed to education for social change. She is working across different institutional and community settings in projects that strive to extend the ideals of equity, inclusion and critical reflection  through education. She comes from Maribor,  a small working class city in Slovenia and appreciates her socialist upbringing that set a good base for  social engagement. Her early work ranges from squatting an ex army facility where she established a youth centre, to teaching and researching at the university. Currently she lives in Melbourne, Australia where she works as a research fellow at Victoria Institute for Education and teaches at Victoria University, both institutions with strong equity agenda. Vida has been a member of Memefest collective since its early days.
