Thekla Malamou and Alexandra Saliba won top honors for a Greek film under 45 minutes at 16th Thessaloniki International Documentary Festival with the film “Social Conservatory – Notes”, a documentary about a collective of professional musicians in Athens who offer free music courses to anyone who wants to learn music but lacks the financial resources. The filmmakers thanked the teachers, students and volunteers at the Social Conservatory and expressed their hope that the documentary will inspire more people to participate in collective action.

The Book ‘Untold Stories’ from Routeldge Publishing devotes a chapter to Caravan Project

The Book ‘Untold Stories’ from Routeldge Publishing devotes a chapter to Caravan Project

Mar 1, 2014

One of the important publishing houses in Great Britain devotes one chapter to the educational and cultural work of the Caravan Project as a Change Platform. The following text describing The Caravan Project as a change platform comes form Professor Maria Daskalaki.

 How do stories become territorialized, de-territorialised and re-territorialized through their performance and re-construction in diverse social contexts? How can untold stories been accessed and re-embedded in a collectively created new social fabric that facilitates institutional entrepreneurship? How stories which remain largely untold obtain legitimacy and new audiences when integrated in social, collectively constructed platforms and differentially embedded social entrepreneurial projects? Our work presented in this storytelling seminar will address these questions by presenting The Caravan Project[1], a travelogue in crisis-stricken Greece aiming at bringing untold stories into the foreground while focusing on the richness and diversity of human narration. Exlusive Sponsor of The Caravan Project is the Stavros Niarchos Foundation

Worldwide Premiere for the film “Black Land” FIFE, Paris

Feb 15, 2014

Worldwide Premiere for the film “Black Land” (Le Festival international du film d’environnement) in Paris. The film travels us to Greece, where, in summer 2012, the island of Chios was devastated by a fire. The inhabitants are fighting the disaster.

Black Land is a documentary about the devastating fire that broke out on the island of Chios, in Greece, in August 2012. The fire is considered to be one of the biggest catastrophies in the history of the island. Local authorities reported that 16,000 acres of forest and farmland were destroyed. The film documents the attempts of the people to put out the fire as well as the transformation of the landscape over the four seasons of the following year. Images of beauty and terror are revealed throughout the film, as an outcome of the fire. The film also records the thoughts and emotions of the people of the island regarding the causes and effects of this catastrophy, revealing truths that can cause us pain and contemplation. Black Land is a film produced by The Caravan Project. Exlusive Sponsor of The Caravan Project is the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

Photographing portraits is an attempt to establish a connection with the human race, to feel how diffenent and at the same time how common is human experience. In order this connection to be real...
