We invite you to discover “The Museum of Our Discoveries”, a project carried out by museum professional Marlen Mouliou to empower young refugees in an urban context.

The initiative aimed to connect teenagers from a small refugee community with the city of Athens using cultural sightseeing as a medium for creating meaningful socio‐cultural experiences and the sharing and exchange of past memories.

The sightseeing experience led to an impromptu exhibition in a refugee camp in the outskirts of Athens that was co‐created by a group of teenagers from Iraq, Syria and Kurdistan.
