Marc Delalonde is a cultural operator based in Athens. Following a master’s in Classical Cultures (2016, Athens), he studied Cultural Management (2018, Lyon) and researched Athens' ecological culture scene, before curating a cycle of discussions and professional meetings at the French Institute of Greece on 'Art & Ecology'.
Propelled by the ongoing collapse of the biosphere and the lack of political (re)action, he decided to act at the local level in developing a culture of ecology able to provoke societal change through art and storytelling.
On this quest, he joined the START program and worked with HausDrei sociocultural center in Hamburg. His project 'Generation Symbiocene' aims at building a community of young citizens committed to changing the narrative on the ecological crisis. To tell the story of a renewed human sense of response-ability and care, he wants to experiment participatory art practices cultivating emotional symbiosis between humans and nature.
