FELLOWS

Matina Solomakou

2015/16 Chios

Matina Solomakou has worked as a private teacher of Greek language and history. Her personal interest is focusing on protecting and promoting tangible and intagible heritage. Her experience is based on two fold factors: firstly on her voluntary work in her local cultural association "Vokaria" for the period 2013-15 and secondly on her internship as a student of the Social Anthropology and History which took place at the folklore museum of Kallimasia in Chios (2014). It was based on a fieldwork in the local community and a collection of data and audiovisual material in order to complete the documentation of the museum collections with information on the relationship between pre-industrial tools and people's lives.

Project Title

mosaic

The mosaic project aims to raise theawareness of the local youth of Nenita, a Chian village about immigrants and refugees. For this reason, a short documentary film was produced by youngsters through the tool kit of oral history. A workshop was held in order to provide to all young participants with the essential technical skills for their production. The documentary represented through different narratives the timeless profile of refugees and was framed by a photo exhibition on the refugees of the past and the present in Chios.
