Dasha Shenkman

International Chair


Dasha is a Canadian, resident in London, with experience in the fields of publishing, visual arts, theatre and music. She was a literary agent for many years and, in 1992, co-founded Atrium, a book shop in Cork Street, London, specialising in international art reference books. She has been involved with a number of arts-oriented organisations, either at board level or as a consultant. She and her brother established the Belle Shenkman Music Programme, in memory of their mother -- a series of weekly concerts at the National Gallery performed by students from the Royal College of Music -- and also initiated a similar programme at the V & A Museum. Dasha is a trustee of the Concordia Foundation, a music charity whose mission is to "build bridges through music and the arts", and is a member of the Tate International Council.
