Dourgouti Island Hotel Project is an ongoing programme of cultural activities created by a theatre company in the historical but “forgotten” neighbourhood of Athens, Greece, called Dourgouti. These activities offer not only cultural products but also new ways of living and experiencing the city. A model of cooperation focusing on strong assets of a place can be a new model for local economy. The results of the project mentioned in this paper show the impact of culture on local society as well as some economic benefits, showing the way to a new economy, organized from the “bottom-up”.
