I am fascinated by the sincerity of people, their experiences, stories, minds and deeply believe that we truly own are our stories: they are our wisdom, our pain, they are love, and connection. I love having deep conversations where I will challenge you and myself to the core, no sugar-coating, but with lots of honest and deep love to give. I am astute, I feel things and people around me.
My friends whom I love dearly come in all colours and sizes, from all kinds of backgrounds. I do not stick to one circle and love the multi-faceted beauty of life and people. I believe that we are all hybrid identities, many things; so let us be wilful about it.
I have a passion for ice-cream and with four little people and my other half, my rock, I live in a home full of life, books and languages. We speak four – Greek, Spanish, English and Dutch- all day long and at the same time.
Academia has always been a true source of inspiration and change to me. It has liberated me and has become my constant companion. In 2020, after 12 years of working life I went back to it and completed a Master in Gender Studies. I also started Salt because I forgot to forget. Salt is for my daughter, my mother, for you, for every BODY. It is a song to our power, our fragility, resilience, permanence because we are love, community and struggle and walk with our arms raised high.
About SALT the Podcast
Salt The Podcast is about honest and bold conversations with women and non-binary people from all spheres of life. Our encounters are part of a collaborative project. We are contesting, deconstructing, passionately recreating and forming connections towards changing systems and perceptions. Our conversations flow into each other, they create space for what matters in an individualized world that constantly distracts and disconnects us from our core. They leave room for the unexpected and build solidarity across borders, issues and movements.
Salt is love, community, solidarity, healing, creating. It is feminist, intersectional, full of stories, movement and change. It insists, evolves and transforms. It is a gathering against all types of violence that affect our bodies, minds, bodies, communities and the environment, a radical connection that recognizes our interdependencies, a standing together, a place where we can meet as we are. It is a commitment.
The Salt Community
Salt is for women and non-binary people, feminists, people who care about social justice. Salt’s listeners come from all spheres of life regardless of their creed, age, socio-economic background, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, race, gender and other forms of diversity. They are an integral part of Salt. As a community we take an intersectional feminist outlook and come together to transform society.
We dare to go beyond and above, and know that by gathering, by standing in solidarity with each other and organizing ourselves effectively we can achieve social justice and enrich lives for present and future generations to come. We can pass the Salt.
Salt hosts artists, activists, academics, mothers, thought-leaders, educators, healers, feminists, world-changers. People that I have met on my way, that I admire, love and care about. People whose voices I want to elevate, whose knowledge needs to be shared and whose stories be told.
We gather on Salt because we understand that the intersection of gender, race, class, sexuality, ability and other forms of diversity create different realities for different people. By having meaningful and defined moments together we create safe and brave spaces; we take responsibility, amplify voices, build solidarity and create engagement across borders, issues and movements.
