TINOS EISAI?

 

The «Τίνος Είσαι;»1 project refers to the self-defining of the 3rd and 4th generation of people who founded and formed the city of Alexandroupolis. This project researches the way that the young people of the city discover their cultural background and their ethnic and cultural identity and groups they belong to, through the everyday stories, the sounds, and the memories of their ancestors.

The goal of this project is to help the young people of Alexandroupolis, the descendants of the first habitants and refugees who founded the city, to get to know the different cultures that exist in the city they live in by using their personal engagement and memories. By reviving their ethnic and cultural past, we aim to help them personally engage with the concept of immigration and understand the common stories that unite all those who were forced to abandon their ancestral home due to violence, war conflict or poverty.

By using photography, testimonial videos, music, and educational programs, our wish is that the young people of Alexandroupolis can reflect and ponder upon the trauma of immigra#on, the importance of maintaining the memory, and the meaning of cultural identity and heritage.

1 «Τίνος Είσαι;» (“Tinos Eisai?") is a Greek expression that translates as “whose are you”? meaning “who are your parents/ where do you come from”?
