A Space for Belonging: Refugees & Locals Share Meals and Dominoes in Athens


As part of the exhibition documenta 14, A Blade of Grass Fellow Rick Lowe worked with local, immigrant, and refugee communities in Athens, Greece in the midst of the Syrian refugee crisis to create Victoria Square Project (VSP). VSP is a shared public space that fosters belonging and models a future for Athens where diverse experiences and cultures are shared and embraced. Maintained by a neighborhood team, it still operates today.
