Artemis holds a degree in Early Childhood Education and a postgraduate Diploma in Environmental Education (Aristotle University). She also has experience in arts and education; she was a volunteer manager and educational coordinator in Thessaloniki’s International Puppet & Mime Festival and has led cultural and educational children’s programs in her local area.
Having participated in numerous theatrical and clowning workshops, Artemis believes there are other effective ways to communicate apart from talking (even though she is also fond of really long conversations!). Her ongoing interest in group dynamics and experiential learning is why she professionally trained in non-directive group facilitation and has conducted connected postgraduate research work.
Using the START fellowship program as an opportunity to build her skill-set for launching sociocultural initiatives, Artemis seeks to realize her vision to create an active teachers’ community. Optimizing experiential methods and the arts, her project Share-Call aims to create a safe space where teachers encounter, empower one another and search for ways to better their school practice, in order to spread a culture of acceptance and non violent communication among their students. If you also share the belief that teachers can be multipliers of democratic values and bring social change, join our Share-Call!
