Circular Cultures

PCAI collaborates with Onassis and the British Council

PCAI is excited to collaborate for the third consecutive year with the British Council and Onassis Stegi on the occasion of Circular Cultures: Topographies of Waste, aiming to explore the issue of the circular economy in the fields of design, fashion, architecture, entrepreneurship and city interventions through the lens of waste recovery.

How can we rethink and, more importantly, redesign our world so that we can have environmental justice, produce and use sustainable technologies, and develop the resilience that our era demands? At an event that includes participants from all over the world, interactive face-to-face and digital workshops, and synergies with organisations, companies and collectives from Greece and abroad, the basic parameters of the issue will be established while seeking for applied and applicable best practices in our daily lives.

During the conference Apostolis Korkolis, Quality Control Lab Manager of Polyeco S.A., will give a talk on circular economy synergies and waste management.


Conference: Thursday 3 March 2022, 14.00–18.45
Workshops and masterclasses: Friday 4 March 2022, 11.00–21.00

Circular Cultures: Topographies of Waste

About Circular Cultures

Circular Cultures is a new British Council sustainable design and creative economies programme in EU Europe, which aims to promote greater awareness around sustainable design, circularity and making cultures. It aims to embed a more critical dialogue around design and circularity, develop the skills and knowledge of creative leaders, and create new EU networks around sustainability and circularity.

In Greece, Circular Cultures is organised in collaboration with Onassis Stegi and is an integral part of the broader collaboration between the British Council and the Onassis Foundation aimed at the development of an ongoing and action-oriented public space for ethical crafts, circular design, materials and fashion sustainability.

Circular Cultures is part of the British Council global programme Making Matters, which aims to foster a global dialogue around the topic of circular design. The multi-disciplinary programme explores how principles of the circular economy can be a catalyst for creativity, collaboration and regenerative thinking within architecture, design and fashion practice.
