A PLACE FOR INTEGRATION
The projects site is located in Kerameikos in Athens Greece. The place has different tip of
buildings like polykatkia and neoclassical. Not far from the place there is victory square
where most of the refugees stay. We had the opportunity to meet NGO like "Melissa" who
help refuge and immigrate woman and children to integrate with new peoples. They also
offer a program like languages course, acting, poetry, and art. My idea for this project is to
create a space with theater and cinema: here refugees and Greek people can come together
and share their stories, they can discuss and talk about themselves and have a cultural
exchange. My project also included a library and workshop space where refugees can
express their creativity like handcrafting, painting, etc. it also included having a place for the
workshop of cinema, workshop of painting and handcraft.
The cultural place can help people to challenge prejudice and misconceptions. It will create
an understanding between refugees and Greek people. It will also develop self-confidence,
presentation skills, language and communication skill that will help them in the future.
Theatre can build self-esteem, create a new friendship and help to create a road for a new
