As co-coordinator of the initiative Cheers for Fears, she works for the cross-linking of young artists and art theorists and for the multiplication of their work and collaboration possibilities.

In 2021, she in collaboration with colleagues initiated produktionsbande and kritik-gestalten, a research laboratory for new forms of theatre criticism.
