Hi There

Filio Kondylis was born on the island of Montreal, Quebec and spent her adolescence growing up in Langley, British Columbia. As a young adult, she enjoyed road trips with her family, joined the school gymnastics team, played soccer, taught herself to draw, wrote poetry & prose, and photographed her surroundings.

Filio’s determined nature and passion for learning, came in very handy while completing a degree in visual arts at the Emily Carr University of Art & Design. It took fifteen years of studying part-time while working part-time and raising her son to reach her goal of graduating.

While attending Emily Carr, she worked with various nonprofit organizations and it was during this time she developed skills in group facilitation, event planning, community arts programming, and leadership. After graduation, she further developed her writing, research, and promotional skills, organizing and executing fundraisers, exhibitions, educational programs, and community initiatives.

In 2009 Filio moved back to Montreal to take on new challenges. While there she completed level four in a French language program and furthered her marketing skills as a social media coordinator and copywriter for a consulting company in the food and beverage industry.

Filio’s involvement in the arts, her interest in healthy communities, and benevolent nature has culminated into her current position leading the volunteer program for a nonprofit cultural organization in Coquitlam, BC.

  1. Glad to connect with you Filio!
    I thought the post on Tweeting your way to Success had a lot of good info. (Articles that help us to recognize good avenues for marketing are always appreciated—probably more than any others.)
    I also enjoy the “philosophical” ones like The Artist & Isolation, & The Stories we Tell Each Other. ( I guess I like getting insights into my own artistic nature.)
    I’d like to see more of your work, too; I’m sure it’d be inspirational to know what motivates you, how you felt when you were doing the work or what it’s aim was—& of course any techniques you’d like to share.
    I think posts that encourage artists just to keep going are very important to all of us out there who are struggling to find our niche, or simply to survive financially.
    Hope something here helps; sure don’t want to see you give up on this blog.

    • As always, you are a source of inspiration. Thank you for your thoughtful and helpful advice. I look forward to sharing my work with you and will think about more helpful promotional posts I can write.

  2. Hi Filio; I miss your posts. I hope everything is okay.

    • Hi! I’m so glad you stopped by to say hi. I’ve missed it too. The problem is I’ve hit a wall. I want to continue, but feel things need to evolve. The question I’m trying to answer is can I stay relevant and helpful. I’m thinking of showing more of my own work as well… which posts have been the most helpful for you K?

  3. I don’t think I ever mentioned this, but I really like your icon/gravatar; very striking .

  4. Of course we went to the same school… sounds like we have a lot more in common.

  5. You are an amazing , talented person. It’s a joy to share your world!

Please share. Inspire others and increase your visibility through participation.
