“During my Intra-European Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship at the Panteion University in Athens, I was invited to participate in activities of the European research project “Hotel Obscura” that was taking place in an immigrant and multicultural neighbourhood opposite the university, in the area of “Dourgouti”. The key organiser was the “Ohi Pezoume” performing arts company, a group of creative artists and workers from different fields within the arts and sciences. With UrbanDig Project the company visits different parts of the modern metropolis and creates site-specific work that brings into light the hidden secrets of each site (recent history, important personalities, urban tales).

Following my participation in the “Dourgouti Hotel Island” project, I am now an External Associate of the arts company and we jointly develop local and global projects that place sport, culture and education at their centre.”
