BOULOUKI

BOULOUKI| is an interdisciplinary research collaborative, whose work is focused on the study of traditional building techniques and materials. In Greek Boulouki means “gaggle”, travelling group, a name evoking the tradition of travelling companies of stone masons and craftsmen. Its aim is to trace and document the living carriers of such traditional knowledge; to study and to further disseminate it through workshops and actual building projects which are organized in collaboration with local communities. Based upon these thematic axes, the group’s course of action includes conducting research, organizing workshops, conferences and cultural events; promoting projects in collaboration with local communities and their stakeholders. 

www.boulouki.org

Boulouki is organizing the programme 'Under the Landscape: Therasia 21-22', which sets at its core a 'hands-on' investigation over the knowledge behind the traditional 'theran' mortars, the cultural values underlying the cave structures and the landscape narrative of Therasia and Thera.

A threefold project on the agency of places in times of multiple crises.
A gathering of joint work, a participatory restoration project and an international symposium are the three parts of the program, which starts in spring 2021 and concludes in summer 2022.
