Hey, Nevena here
I'm a social-change campaigner based in Melbourne. My activism is centered around homelessness advocacy, LGBTIQ rights, and social equity. I work as a campaign manager, speaker, panelist and facilitator, freelance writer, podcaster, and community volunteer.
From 2016-2019, I was volunteer Vice President of National Homeless Collective, the governing body of Melbourne Period Project, Sleeping Bags for the Homelessness, Secret Women's Business, Plate Up Project and The School Project.
In 2018, I co-facilitated and was the resident Social Impact Expert at VU Activator. The Activator was designed for students with an interest in making a positive difference whilst creating a sustainable business. Five successful organisations have been launched following VU Activator.
Since 2018, I've been the Co-Convener of the Victorian Gay & Lesbian Rights Lobby, working towards equality, social justice and human
rights for members of the LGBTIQ community.
I've worked with the United Nations, Amnesty International, Parliament of Victoria, Deakin University, Swinburne University, Victoria University, RMIT, MPavillion, ABC TV, Triple J, Bank of Melbourne, VICE, i-D Magazine, Golden Plains Music Festival, Emerging Writers' Festival, 3RRR, Philanthropy Melbourne, Ladies of Leisure, Biomedicine Melbourne & many more.
I've recently had the pleasure of working with:
Geelong Performing Arts Centre to deliver their Student Leadership Forum and follow up workshops.
National Homeless Collective to establish The Kala Space op-shop in East Brunswick, which provides employment to women experiencing homelessness.
Victorian Gay & Lesbian Rights Lobby on their Rainbow Votes priorities for the 2019 Federal Election.
Sleeping Bags for Homelessness winter campaign.
