Team 1 Statement:
Both coming from an architectural background, we share a common interest in the way communities inhabit and interpret urban environments. Therefore, we aim to engage the public through spatial activities and practices that negotiate the cityscape, as well as lived experiences within it. Pursuing different fields of creative practice, such as digital and print media, performative acts and spatial installations, we are experimenting with different forms of narratives in order to facilitate public discourse.
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.
