Kaktos Project is an independent artist-run space, founded by artist Caroline May in order to raise questions about the changing urban landscape of Athens and the forces of gentrification, with the aim to empower community and collective action, and communicate ideas about art and civic space through a series of exhibitions, talks and educational activities. The space is located in the centre of Athens, at 38, Cheyden street, in a highly contested area where questions of migration, regeneration and public space are foregrounded.
