During July and August 2007, City Index organised 27 workshops in Elefsina.
The team was in charge of selecting the workshops and providing with the required supplies in terms of safe and suitable workspaces, materials, tools and other equipment.
The workshops were organised in four main categories according to their intentions
constructive workshops/ new media workshops/ research workshops/ physical performance.
All the workshop results were presented to the wider public during the exhibition "Report
The main intention was the interactivity with the residents and the raising of discussions
over urban issues. The quality of common space, the activation of old industrial
shells, the ancient past of the place or the emerging new identity of Elefsina were
some of the issues with which workshops dealt. However, the most intriguing perspective
was the problematic relation of the city with the sea, due to the great expansion of
industry. So, a lot of workshops chose to intervene and leave their comments at the
sea-front. Two inactive industrial shells in that area were temporarily revived by their use
as work and exhibition spaces.
