2023 Eleusis European Capital of Culture organises for the first time on 29 and 30 March, at the Elefsina Old Oil Mill Factory, the conference “Narrative Archaeology | Performance in archaeological sites and excavation of human experience.” This two-day meeting takes place in the framework of the composite art activity Mystery 20 Performing Arts Initiator – Narrative Archaeology, with the aim of promoting an interdisciplinary dialogue between Arts and Archaeology.

The conference will focus on the one hand on the model methodology of Mystery 20 Performing Arts Initiator – Narrative Archaeology: a Model Action, as it is usually called, one of the most important projects of the organisation’s Legacy programme, which aims to highlight through the performing arts the inexhaustible topographical archaeological wealth and its potential on a national and European level. On the other hand, the conference will focus on the promotion of good practices in the application of Performing Arts in archaeological sites and monuments in Greece and internationally, and on the transformation of archaeological information into an experience for the visitor.

The meeting is open to students, researchers and academics in the fields of History, Archaeology, Theatre and Cultural Management, Archaeologists, Artists (with a special interest in the in-situ creation), Tour & Tourist Guides, Cultural Managers, national and international public and private organisations and cultural institutions, along with the general public with an interest in history, archaeology, narrativity and theatre.

Admission Free.
