Nina Angelo OAM was born in Athens, Greece, shortly after WW2 and migrated to Sydney, Australia in June 1949 with her parents, both survivors of the Nazi concentration camps.

In the early 60s, Nina nourished her passion as an artist at the National Art School, experimenting with many art forms before settling on her life-long journey with textiles. Her community work and artistic and cultural heritage led her on countless adventures across Australia, the Pacific Islands and ultimately, back to Europe.

While overcoming significant challenges from “frying pan to fire”, Nina has founded, coordinated, publicised, taught and work-shopped creative and community arts and festival events, for over thirty years. She is a colourful character with a gift for connection with people of all ages and cultures.

Nina’s book, Don’t Cry, Dance: A memoir of war, love & forgiveness is based on her parents’ experience as Holocaust survivors and migration to Australia.
