Public Open Event: "Gentrification or the Alienation of the Neighbourhood?"

Travlou, P. (Organiser)

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesPublic Engagement – Festival/Exhibition


I co-organised an open assembly inviting different grassroots initiatives, groups and individuals who actively participate in the discussion around 'gentrification' in Athens. This event launced also the start of my ethnographic fieldwork in the formation of the a network of activist local collectives on gentrification and touristification of the city centre of Athens. Part of the findings will be used in the COST Action From Sharing to Caring project as they are relevant to issues around collaborative economy.
