Team 4 Statement:

Iris Bournazou and Kyriakos Papadopoulos are based in the emerging arts scene between Greece and abroad. Coming from a contemporary and architectural background, our aim is to highlight the importance of culture, arts and society; through diverse tools and forms (experiential learning, workshops etc.), we channel creativity to empower multifarious communities. Motivated by creating a space for social discourse and solidarity, our goal is to reinterpret art through society into new contexts.

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.
