STORIES is a development fund supported by Faliro House Productions
Stories is a research and development fund with which we want to respond to and record stories from Tavros, an area formed by waves of migration, with small scale industries, a neighborhood where green open spaces can still be found and the horizon can still sometimes be seen.
Adrian Paci has been invited to Tavros for preliminary research as part of our Stories program.
