Klairi was born in Chios. She has a background in Cultural Communication and Technology (University of Aegean, Lesvos) and in Social and Cultural Anthropology (Freie Universität, Berlin).She holds an MA in Museum Studies (Department of History and Archaeology, University of Athens) and her PhD, in the same department, focuses on the public archaeology of mountain and remote communities. She has participated in
numerous research projects and archaeological excavations, in recent years leading the archaeological ethnography project in Anatoli region of East Crete.
Her participation in the START Fellowship program, in 2018, demonstrates her aim to gain practical experience in cultural management and use it in the organization of an experiential cultural festival (ArchaeoLogik). Her goal is to bring her PhD to life, in order to show that Academia should be involved in ordinary life. She deeply believes that cultural and archaeological heritage can contribute effectively to the upgrading of everyday life, especially in areas with difficult living conditions. Her vision is to take ArchaeoLogik to the next level, by applying it to other
rural areas of Greece. If that doesn’t work she plans to move to the village where she does her fieldwork and grow a garden.
