Periklis was born in 1992 in Thessaloniki, where he still lives. In recent years he has worked as a cinematographer and community worker, managing various cultural events and projects in his hometown. His studies in Cultural Technology and Communication (BA), provided him with the basic tools of cultural management, while studying Human Geography, Spatial Development and Design (MA) offered him a better understanding of the relationship between humans and the space around them.
Through his participation in the START program (2019) he is convinced that he will find opportunities to deepen his involvement in cultural management, discover new ways of applying ideas and evolve his professional skills. His vision is the development of social cohesion through the creation of a hub and to find solutions and deal with climate change in the urban landscape by working on a neighbourhood scale. His middle/up/down approach, in parallel with peer to peer knowledge, involves exchange laboratories, participatory planning, up-cycling methods and community building tools.
Τhe increasingly severe Greek crisis and effects of climate change make him believe that this crucial situation must and can change through collaboration. He believes that his ideas will be successful and can be scaled up in other neighbourhoods around the world!
