Call for participation in art exhibition "Find Refugee in Art" (Project PRESS)

Call for participation in art exhibition 

As part of its awareness campaigns and support actions for refugees, Project PRESS (Provision of Refugee Education and Support Scheme, Hellenic Open University) invites artists of refugee and other origin who live in Greece, to contribute to the art exhibition “Find Refuge In Art (FRIA)”. The exhibition will be held in autumn 2017 in Athens. The focal point of the exhibition will be the works created by the partnership of five already selected pairs of artists (refugee/non-refugee). We also invite individual artists to submit individual projects that contribute to the artistic reflection on refugee experience.

The main objectives of the exhibition are:

• artistic intercultural dialogue between refugees and local artists;

• artistic depiction of the refugee experience;

• awareness of the general public on the refugee phenomenon.

Artists are free to use any means of expression they wish (Photo, Video, Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Digital storytelling, digital poetry /literature, Performance and others not mentioned here).

Submission: May 2nd - July 31st , 2017
