Unusual Suspects Festival 2015: Invited Speaker at the a) Opening Dialogue & Reception and b) the session: "The Future Of Social Enterprise in Scotland and the World"

The Unusual Suspects Festival 2015 in Glasgow was a three-day event of ideas, solutions and debate exploring what happens when social innovation meets collaboration and how together we can meet some of society’s most pressing challenges. I was invited to be one of the four keynote speakers at the Opening Dialogue & Reception and discuss my research on collaborative practices. I particularly focused on my current ethnographic work in Athens where among other things I have been looking at collaborative economy grassroots initiatives e.g. a collective African kitchen. I was also invited as guest contributor to the session 'The Future of Social Enterprise in Scotland and the World' to showcase examples of social innovation in Greece.
