With support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), the Siena Art Institute (SART) has launched Art Cloud Greece, a new Athens-based project during 2021 that sees the direct involvement of our former students as cultural entrepreneurs.

Το Art Cloud Greece είναι το νέο πιλοτικό πρόγραμμα που εδρεύει στην Αθήνα και ξεκίνησε τον Μάιο του 2021 από το Siena Art Institute (SART) και συγχρηματοδοτήθηκε από το Ίδρυμα Σταύρος Νιάρχος (SNF).Το πρόγραμμα αφορά την άμεση συμμετοχή των πρώην φοιτητών/τριών του SART ως πολιτιστικών διαχειριστών. Μια ομάδα από οκτώ νέους Έλληνες καλλιτέχνες έχει επιλεγεί για να ενεργοποιήσει συμμετοχικές διαδικασίες μέσω μιας συνεχούς σειράς πολιτιστικών εκδηλώσεων και έργων κατά το φθινόπωρο του 2021, εμπλέκοντας τοπικές και διεθνείς καλλιτεχνικές κοινότητες,  ενώ παράλληλα ευαισθητοποιεί πολιτιστικά και ενθαρρύνει την κοινωνική υπευθυνότητα μέσω διαλόγου με ποικίλα ακροατήρια.
