Name of the place / building: RESCUEing old primary school of Poros
Short description of the building/place:
Due to the lack of a minimum number of students in the village of Poros, the primary school had to close and has stayed closed for years. Following the request of the village council to exploit this building for the benefit of the local community, a decision was taken by the Municipality of Lefkas and the Greek Ministry of Education to dispose the old school to the village cultural association.
In 2022, the village council requested cooperation of Solidarity Tracks to develop the old school and create a local folklore museum, space for the association’s activities, place for national and international volunteers, and an outdoor space for the organization of various cultural and artistic events. Up to now, the building has been furnished and decorated in a personalized way. Together with members of the local cultural association, members and volunteers of Solidarity Tracks are working on the design of the interior space and the venue for cultural events.
