GUIDED TOUR
KARANTINA PLAY GARDEN: PLATFORM FOR RECONCILIATION

Friday, June 29
6 PM - 8 PM

Karantina originally the place of enforced isolation‹ became a refuge for the minorities and the displaced, and until today is rich with communities from diverse ethnic backgrounds.  It has also been witnessing a rise in art galleries, major developments, as well as a nightlife scene all of which are subsequently impacting its socio-economic status. The public garden was a previously abandoned space at the heart of Karantina with lush clumps of tall trees forming a charming oasis.
Join us for the guided tour where we will walk you through Karantina's history and complexity, the collaborative design process, our dialogues with the community and the kids of Karantina; to learn about their dynamic play rituals and dynamics and how they were the main drive to transform the space to become a platform for harmonious reconciliation between past and present, enabling grounds of encounter between different communities, cultures, and generations.
