Paraskevi Sidiropoulou

Paraskevi is from Thessaloniki, Greece. She lives in the U.K. and studies Psychology at Nottingham Trent University.

She is currently a social arts facilitation intern at the Living Network of ImaginAction, where she has been training in creative facilitation approaches such as the Rainbow of Desire, Newspaper Theatre, and Social Presencing Theatre.

Paraskevi is interested in how performance and creative expression can be used to address social issues and to foster connection, growth, and wellbeing. She believes that the stories we tell and the way in which we choose to narrate, perform, and embody them, are powerful tools for development for people and communities.

She has facilitated creative workshops for the international conference “Play, Perform, Learn, Grow” (2021), support groups for isolating students using storytelling and improv, as well as theatrical play groups for children and adolescents in Greece. She has co-facilitated the “Arte Migrante” online community group, where people from every background were encouraged to connect through sharing and making of all forms of art.
