In 2023, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Centers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Simon Fraser University (SFU) initiated a collaboration with the Cultural Committee of Geraki (Πολιτιστικός Σύλλογος Γερονθρών), the Ephorate of Antiquities of Laconia, and Geraki Archaeological Project (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) to investigate and relate the story of the history of weaving in Geraki, a village in the foothills of Mount Parnon. This project is organized by Gefyra, a UCLA/SFU collaboration supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). With special thanks to Mrs. Chrysoula Stamatopoulou, weaver and teacher.
