Marina Neophytou is a believer in arts-based practices, the use of digital technologies and grassroots approaches. With these ideals at hand, she helped build one of the most groundbreaking civil society peacebuilding initiatives in Cyprus. Taking the lessons learned from her 15 years of experience in strategy, operations and campaign to other post conflict societies, she hopes to make a positive and lasting change in the lives of youth. A change that is supported from the outside but developed within, one that enables the partners to continue creating.

Marina holds an MSc in Organisational and Social Psychology and a BSc in Operational Research/Management Sciences from the University of London School of Economics and Political Sciences in London. She is an experienced director with a demonstrated history of working in the CSO, media, consulting and advertising industries. She is a strong business development professional, skilled in operations, project management, strategy, digital performance media, communications, strategic campaign management and  consulting.

Her overall goal is to make sure the youth and communities that take part in VIVOs initiatives, gain something beautiful and substantial.     ︎    ︎     ︎
