The life of two or more living organisms under the same roof.
One of the least known refugee camps in Greece is The Open Temporary Accommodation Facility in Corinth, Central Greece, commonly known as the “Corinth Camp”. It is used as a transit camp for asylum seekers. Most of them come from Syria, Afghanistan and sub-Saharan African countries.
Different cultures coexist in big tents divided into small rooms, one for each family. A society is formed that struggles to survive in the new conditions.
Despite the difficulties they face, you can see the dignity in their faces. The barriers of language, religion and culture are always there, yet these people coming from many different backgrounds try to live with each other and make the best of it.
A microcosm has been formed just like in every accommodation facility and the people are asked to cope with many issues regarding mental health, living conditions, racism and the level of welfare received from the Greek State. Some of its guests are waiting for ceasefire in order to be able to return home. Others dream of a peaceful life in a place willing to embrace them and help them start their life from scratch, whether in Greece or elsewhere.
