The ravine is the most significant hydrographic feature in the Penteli - Chalandri region, and its presence has made a decisive contribution to the area's flora and fauna. It is the continuation of Lithagogias Street, the ancient route used to transport marble from the Pentelikos mountain quarry to the ancient city of Athens. It is likely that there was a sanctuary of the goddess Demeter in the area, as well as a burial site from the Mycenaean period. During Roman times, the ravine's waters fed the Hadrian Aqueduct. The stream was already depicted on the Attica maps of 1883, which were edited by the Bavarians Ernst Curtius and Johann August Kaupert.

Seventeen (17) visual artists embarked on a tour of the Chalandri ravine, initially with the objective of exploring and documenting various aspects of the landscape, and subsequently creating a visual representation of the stream. Walking served as the primary method for this on-site investigation. Each artist immersed themselves in the landscape, taking in its rich array of sounds, scents, flora, and fauna, and translating their experiences into cartographic form. These visual impressions were compiled into a printed catalog resembling a map-guide of the area, serving as a foundation for a series of visual interpretations inspired by the Chalandri stream.

Subsequently, utilizing their experiential wanderings and the maps they created, the artists produced visual artworks that will be showcased for a duration of two (2) weeks in the vicinity of Euripides Chalandri's Theater.
