Elena Silvestrini
Lab 4 Participant

I am a Southern European feminist who has lived in London for the past few years. I am proud team member of Chayn, a gender and tech project providing women living domestic violence with tools, information and support. I am also the founder of Chayn’s Italian chapter. I am currently working at New Economy Organisers Network supporting the creation of NEON Europe – a European network of activists and organisers working for an economy based on social and environmental justice. After a few years engaging in feminist activism back in Italy, I am now mostly involved in diasporic projects which include Archivio Queer Italia, an online open source platform for queer art, theory and activism. My background is in Political Science and Gender, development and globalisation studies.
