saBarBar project and Troubadours Digital invite you to a special tour of Exarcheia neighborhood: theater students and enthusiasts, musicians, song writers, people with expressive concerns from different nationalities and cultures, scatter across corners, squares and streets of Exarcheia presenting their own version of the neighborhood. Based on residents' testimonies and oral history material, they create songs and short performances, composing a creative map of the area.
