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.
