(2022) next day of 
lipasmata park

(2024) a hybrid cultural tour for lipasmata park

The new digital platform of Lipasmata Park, gives digital visitors access to browse through the history of the former industrial area, learn about the industrial buildings that still exist and hear the Podcast series "Labor Park" that presents the history of the former factory and the stories of people who worked and lived in the area.


The platform gives access to a digital and physical "walk" around the Park, giving online and offline visitors the opportunity to walk around, make (apointed) stops and learn more about the industrial buildings and other areas of the Park.


(2024) new digital platform

The creation of this platform relates to a common need that was "pointing out" during the development of the Park's vision back in 2021 as 41% of the Park's visitors had small or no knowledge about the historic development of the former industial area and 92% wanted to learn more and/or participate in activities and events relared to the Park's history.

The platform's main focus is around visitors knowledge on the area's history with additional information on the park today, activity schedule, live maps, access to the podcast series, etc.

(2024) podcast series

In January 2023 COMM'ON in collaboration with Lipasmata Park premiered the Podcast Series "Labor Park" that presents the history of the former Fertilizer's factory in Drapetsona and the stories of people who worked and lived in the area.

"Labor Park" is a 6 episode audio documentary that sheds light on the history of Fertilizer's Factory, a story full of social battles, defeats and victories, with the city of Drapetsona in Piraeus as a backdrop.
