2021 SNF-SART Cultural Entrepreneurship Pilot Program
What are we up to in Greece?
With support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), the Siena Art Institute (SART) is launching Art Cloud Greece, a new Athens-based project during 2021 that sees the direct involvement of our former students as cultural entrepreneurs. The aim is to engage the international art community that rotates around the Siena Art Institute; to provide professional experience for young artists beginning their careers; to enrich the cultural activities of local communities in Greece with particular attention to marginalized communities. Participants are organized in small teams to work on specific project goals to be completed within December 2021.
This is an expansion of the Siena Art Institute’s SNF-sponosored initiatives which began in 2014. See our website for more information: https://www.sienaart.org/Programs/SNF-SART-Residency-Scholarship-Program/

On our visit to Athens this past weekend, we also met up with our former Siena Art Institute resident artist Alexandros Georgiou, to see some of his current work-in-progress. Our recent resident artists Vassiliki Spachou & Fotis Flevotomos also joined us for brainstorming meetings as we work towards more exciting Greek collaborations! Their residencies at the Siena Art Institute were sponsored by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation
