Becoming the City presents our work as active citizens in Athens. It showcases perspectives from members of our team, speaking as individuals and as one, across and through multiple languages. The piece centres on citizenship, activism, art, and the political voice: how we use diversity to create the city, find shared histories and connected cultures, use art to assert presence and belonging, and work to become Athenians. Our narratives stretch across geographies and borders. From this emerge rebellious methodologies that develop new forms of citizenship.
