Pocket art festival ART IS US

The Art and Action Network (the people with the balloons) is pleased to invite you to the pocket festival organized by the Art is Us program.

During the period of lockdowns due to the Covid19 Pandemic, a reality emerged that wanted artists and creative people to be excluded from the support that other professional spaces had. That’s where the slogan #SupportArtWorkers came from. Through this need, the @Network of Art and Action together with other organizations from Slovenia, Romania, Italy, Germany and Greece, proposed the creation of an e-learning platform (MOOC) that would aim at the professional and digital empowerment of artists, and creative people in general. At the same time, he collected material about the ethics of supporting groups facing exclusion, aimed at teachers and humanitarian workers.

As we come to the conclusion of the program, we invite you to a pocket art festival:

On February 4, 2023 at 6.30pm at the Association of Greek Archaeologists (Ermou 134, Metro Thisio), the writing team of ART IS US, together with 15 trainees of the program, will present the projects they created as part of their training. These are works, as we say, coming from the “field” which record, through creative and digital media, issues concerning specific groups of artists or not, such as Roma communities, refugee communities, Lgbtq+ issues, Third Age artists, etc. a.

On February 4, 2023 from 20:00-24:00 pm at the space of the artist collective: HORIZONTAS GEGONOTON (Keramikou 88), the wall works and handicrafts of those trained in the ART IS US project will be exhibited, together with the visual works of its members collective.
