Nana Varveropoulou

Artists

Nana Varveropoulou is a photographer, artist and lecturer. Varveropoulou’s practice and research is focused on various issues relating to human rights and social justice, often through the process of collaboration. Significant projects include No Man’s Land, a collaborative project exploring experiences of indefinite immigration detention in the UK, and Alternative Provision, a project investigating the causes and impact of exclusion from mainstream education, through the lens of the young people experiencing it.

Varveropoulou also works as an editorial photographer for various UK and European publications and as an artist/facilitator, supporting different communities in the UK through the process of developing community-led art projects.

In 2020 Varveropoulou was commissioned by Peckham Platform as an artist facilitator for Creative Civic Change, a community participation arts programme using arts and creativity to make positive change to communities across the UK. This programme, supported by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Local Trust and Big Lottery Fund, selected 16 communities across the UK (of which Peckham was one, via Peckham Platform) to work with different artists in order to explore how arts and culture can contribute towards the social change they want to bring about.

The workshops facilitated by Varveropoulou were the starting point of Tilting the Mirror, one of our longterm intergenerational programmes.
