Settlements for repatriates in Farkadona
Post Programmed City_Territory is an interdisciplinary,
self-administered collaborative project. It consists of a series of
cultural activities, workshops and devices of interaction with territory
and public events. Moreover, it focuses primarily on Emergency Case
Situations as seen at the settlement of the repatriated community of
Greek-Pontians from the former Soviet Union in Farkadona, in the district
of Trikala, Thessaly in Greece.
The settlement was created in the early 90s as a result of a state policy
of peripheral dispersion of refugees in organized camps and units. Fifteen
years after their rehabilitation, the residents of the community still
live under conditions of degradation, ghettoization and exception.
Based on the significance of territory as a reception of
human activity, PPC_T/Farkadona examines the ways in which the marginalized
community can be rehabilitated and incorporated in the existing landscape,
local society and in economic, cultural and political life.
