Abstract

People’s organisations are creating a context for social action and urban praxis in Athens. Due to the lack of any state or government initiatives, new rhythms are emerging from the streets. Mediated, supported and maintained by social media platforms and location based services such as Facebook, blogs and smartphone applications, these organisations utilise these as tools to bring people together, under a common context: to share and exchange things, ideas and actions. This paper argues that psychogeographical maps, smartphone applications, Facebook groups and event pages, which mediate actions and ideas inscribed in these projects, depict new rhythms emerging in the city of Athens.
