Welcome to Athens Tribes
Athens Tribes re-imagines the cultural identity of Athens by inviting people with diverse roots to a series of meet-ups for the exploration of the new multi-tribal elements of the city.
With universal nuances of one’s culture such as dance, food, music & arts as common grounds we’ve created a series of conceptual artworks reflecting the distinct traditional traits of each place but also the thing in common across cultures.
Impact Hub Athens teams up with Musikarama and with ethnic groups in Athens and design a pop up urban exhibition in the public space! From 6th of June pop over to Rozan Park & meet the Athens Tribes!
We cultivate ideas for experimentation, whilst promoting culinary ideas with new nuances.
Through dialogue & collaboration we aim to design artworks that encourage creative dialogue
Come and join us!
Athens Tribes invites you to an open air exhibition revolving around 4 themes relevant to every culture. We've collected stories, techniques, know-how from different communities in Athens and have created collective exhibits, soon to be on display in the urban space of Exarchia.
Within the four themes of food, music, dance & crafts Impact Hub Athens and Musikarama, together with a diverse network of people in Athens, have created 5 display boxes with sounds, images, videos, handicrafts and jars of pickle which will be installed at Rozan Park. Designed to provoke conversation we hope it will offer a window into new worlds for those interested in exploring new Athenian identities.
The Athens Tribes exhibition is a work in progress - it seeks and encourages ongoing input from the exhibition's visitors - there is still lots of space for participation from new friends.
On 4th of June we welcome you to the exhibitions opening, Athens Tribes invites you to get involved in the creation & remixing of new Athenian identities expressed through the forms of gastronomy, art, music & dance.
Your imagination, know-how & perception are more than welcome as part of the project. See below for how to join us.
Exhibition dates & times: 4th of June | 11th of June | 16th & 17th of June - 6pm - 9pm
