Greeceworks // 2012 Artist Residency in Greece

In the past few years many Greeks living out of Greece have been astonished at the gross misrepresentation of their country in the media. Whether this is regarding the level of apparent social unrest, the reduction in tourism or the state of their economy, the international media tend to exclude the expression of the opinions Greeks themselves in favour of a more euro-centric commentary.

Greeceworks, a summer artist residency in various locations in Greece, seeks to react to this through a series of artistic endeavours. A number of artists, many of them Greek are meeting in Athens to “empower people to get involved with the changes they want to see by using the arts”.
