Mar Mikhael is a neighbourhood that is changing. While its inhabitants continue to enjoy its traditional characteristics, young artists, craftsmen and designers have located their trades in former garages. Though this has contributed to Mar Mikhael’s appeal, it has also attracted real estate development and nightlife, putting Mar Mikhael’s atmosphere under threat.

From 16 to 24 January, GAIA-Heritage is hosting a weeklong event of activities In Mar Mikhael within the EU-funded project MEDNETA. The event includes different activities:
