Self Defense Class
The self defense classes are the longest running project held in Khora so far. The students are currently in need of safety equipment donations, as well as support with expanding their classes into local gyms, to provide a more regimented schedule as well as a safer space to practice in.
Please get in touch if you can support this project.
Trans Geographic Cinema School of Athens
The Trans Geographic Cinema School of Athens is set to open within Khora at the end of January. The school will begin with a 6 month documentary course that will run out of Khora's education floor, with the hope to expand the course into an external building. The project is currently still seeking funding to pay the teachers, as well as equipment donations to be able to supply a high level education environment for the refugee students enrolled.
Please email TGcinemaschool.firstname.lastname@example.org for more questions or to get involved.
Khora Music School & Recording Studio
The Khora music school has begun its classes with small group lessons of guitar, piano and violin. The music school is housed in one room within the Khora Community Centre and with time and support would like to expand its reach by having a space outside of Khora to teach more and more students in.
Currently, the music school is in need of more teachers as well as instruments as this is what is holding us back with expanding the reach of the lessons.
Urban Farming Initiatives
In conjunction with the Khora kitchen, an urban farming project is coming together to grow food throughout Athens, on rooftops, and in any open space available. The desire is to grow food on the roof to help supply a more self sufficient supply of vegetables for our kitchen. In the future, the project would like to give portable planters with seeds and seedlings to the community who use the Khora Community Centre to allow for a more autonomous food supply. Food for All!
Please get in touch if you can donate any time or equipment for a project like this, or if you have land in Athens to donate to the project.
The Info Point & Infomap is an ongoing project with Hole in the Borders with information to be shared between other groups within Athens and independent groups on 6 different islands. The idea is to have an online database for all of the support groups and areas within Athens for refugees. This project is very extensive.
