In Greek, Boulouki means “gaggle”, a travelling group; a word evoking the tradition of itinerant companies of stone masons and craftsmen. The aim of our team is therefore to trace and document the living carriers of such traditional knowledge; to study and further disseminate it through workshops and real building projects which are organized in collaboration with local communities and their stakeholders. This text provides an outline of a participatory project and an educational program which took place from September 9 to October 31 in 2019 in the settlement of Plaka, within the broader area of Tzoumerka (Epirus, Greece).
