Vasylysa Shchogoleva (*1991) is a visual artist with a background in architecture based in Berlin (from Kharkiv, Ukraine). The cornerstone of her work is the participative design process. She sees it as a way of supporting diversity, inclusion, and sustainability in the world.

This vision found its way in the winning design for the community housing project in Berlin-Steglitz, numerous public space interventions, illustration work for the CoHousing Inclusive Book, and community project Moabit Hürdenfrei, as well as other projects. The interactive nature of her work leads her to short or long-term workshops. During her student years, she became a co-founder of an NGO “Critical Thinking”. One of the highlights of the NGO work are two projects at the home neighborhoods in large-housing estate area, Saltivka, where she grew up at.

Alongside commissions, she is dedicating part of her time to developing her artistic career.
