by Marc Serhan, edited by Elina Akselrud

Elina Akselrud has been organizing, running, and managing her own artistic projects since 2014. She is the founder and artistic director of a multidisciplinary organization Intertwining Arts, which has premiered, performed, and presented cinematic versions of four full-scope multidisciplinary productions in France, Switzerland, Germany, and Netherlands. Each project consists of several professionals from various artistic mediums collaborating together in order to create and perform a unique multidisciplinary work. For various projects Intertwining Arts included team members from the United States, Australia, Ukraine, Germany, Russia, Poland, Netherlands, Switzerland, France, Romania, Italy, and Spain. In each project Elina Akselrud is personally responsible for the project concept, piano performance, administration, fundraising, management, logistics, seeking/securing collaborations, poster design, photography/visuals (partially), text writing (partially), and promo/marketing (partially).

In parallel Elina also organizes thematic chamber music projects, in which she collaborates with musicians from Switzerland, Germany, France, and the United States since 2018.
