Vasilis is currently living in Athens, doubling as a professional in the field of displaced unaccompanied minors' protection, as well as working as a writer and filmmaker. He has a BA in Psychology and a Professional Diploma in filmmaking, and his dissertation focuses on divergent thinking and creative writing (MA Applied Cognitive and Developmental Psychology). His artistic collaborations include organisations such as "Michael Cacoyannis" Foundation and Piraeus Municipal Theatre, and his short films are shown in various festivals.
In 2018 his START Placement in Düsseldorf with Zakk marks a unique opportunity for him to engage in exciting collaborations, get inspired by other professionals in the field, and obtain a multiperspective intercultural experience: all further fuel his project work!
Deeply convinced of the power of collaboration and diversity, he seeks to bring his dreams to life in Athens, on a creative journey full of interweaved personal and collective narratives. He is determined to provide groups of excluded minorities with tools to discover and develop mutual discourse with the local community, through a series of non-traditional, outdoor, site-specific, creative writing activities (roadtrip anyone?). So, fasten your seatbelts and start the engines: ‘The Campfire Stories’ have begun!!
