Aga is an experienced project manager, cultural and social activist, and researcher in Jewish studies.
After a decade-long professional career in Brussels, Belgium where she specialized in corporate and public sector event management and communication strategies involving European Union programs and institutions, Aga took interest in social, cultural and Corporate Social Responsibility projects. Last year, she joined an Israeli-Palestinian educational organization, the Middle East Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow (MEET). In partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), MEET is educating and empowering young Palestinian and Israeli leaders to create positive social and political change in the region through technology and entrepreneurship. Aga is responsible for developing MEET's partnerships and fundraising within Europe.
Aga is also involved in cultural activism in Poland and in academic research. She has completed an M.A. in Jewish Civilizations at the Center for Jewish Studies Heidelberg, and holds an M.A. in Political Science from the University of Wrocław. In 2017-2018 she completed the One-Year-Program at the European Institute for Jewish Studies in Sweden - Paideia. In 2019, Aga was awarded a Nahum Goldmann Fellowship. In her research, drawing from history, topography, archeology and memory studies, she has focused on the 18th century former Jewish cemetery on Gwarna Street in Wrocław, Poland. The reseach topic grew into a civic initiative, aiming at protection and commemoration of the cemetery, which led to the creation of a new entity - UMF. In 2020, together with a group of researchers, architects, genealogists, educators, and activists from Wrocław and beyond, including descendants of Breslau Jews, Aga co-founded the Urban Memory Foundation - UMF and took a leadership position of the President of the Board.
