The Poet

Evá Papadakis (he/they) is a Greek performer and poet. Their poetry collection “meraklina|koukibiberissa|obladi” aims to revolutionise tradition and frame society’s response to current gender, equality, inclusion and belonging narratives by re-shaping collective memory. Their vision, throughout their career and everyday life, is to act as a Changemaker on a personal and local level with a mission to contribute to a glocal movement where anyone, anywhere, anytime can take action and start a Revolution: to dismantle current systems within; to dissolve current narratives. As part of their human-centered storytelling, they are also providing change-making communications focussing on gender, refugee and climate change topics for the United Nations. They hold an M.A. in Gender, Media & Culture from Goldsmiths, University of London.
