Digital pagakia (benches) is a public art intervention which aims to collect audio recordings from citizens and passersby in the city of Athens.
Everyday life stories were initially shared while sat on benches whilst digital platform digitalpagakia.gr gathers them and creates a storytelling ‘museum’ in the heart of the city.

This pilot program is specially designed for the city of Athens and starts from the area of Pangrati.
This intervention aims to reveal the uniqueness of everyday life stories while keeping them alive and benches to obtain a narrative quality besides their useful one, making public space a vibrant place of expression & socialisation.
