An exhibition by Syrian artists who are inspired and create, despite the war they are experiencing in their country, is returning to Thessaloniki, enriched with new pieces. Pieces that carry messages of hope, peace, and love; Inner strength that is a life lesson for us all. These people are happy, they love, they live, and they see the bright side of life. The “light” of the Syrian people is what makes love and hope overcome pain and loss.

Event Details

The up-and-coming Greek photographer graduated from Farnham University for the Creative Arts and soon started collecting international distinctions, receiving high profile awards, participating in exhibitions in Europe and the USA, publications in magazines and newspapers such as Wallpaper*, Monocle, Guardian, and Jeu de Paume.

The ‘Unseen limits / Makeshift constructions’ series presented at this year’s Photobiennale is curated by Iraklis Papaioanou. As the curator himself noted, in Petros Efstathiadis’ photographs “constructed themes mix in enchanting fashion with the natural background, raw reality turns into a crafted creation, everyday spaces are temporarily transformed into a track for artistic acts, shortening distances that have been set out in welcome and unexpected ways”.

Multi-theme festival

The 7PLY PROJECT / seven sheets of wood, a.k.a the skateboard, is returning for its thirteenth year, focusing on young people and their aesthetic codes.

The event is the largest street culture celebration in Thessaloniki and it will hold seven days of events focused on the new Olympic sport of skateboarding, culture, sports, and urban culture.

More than one thousand pieces by Greek and international artists have been presented since 7Ply Project was first held in 2006, while the festival has hosted a number of skateboard competitions and shows, skateboard lessons, colloquiums and workshops, guided by modern art, street dance, screenings, graffiti on walls and specially designed surfaces, concerts and DJ sets, all kinds of events focused on street culture and the interests of young audiences.

Keeping skateboarding at the core of its themes once again, this year’s 7Ply Project presents a group exhibition at the French Institute of Thessaloniki, in the framework of which artists are invited to transform skateboards, each artist using their own perspective and technique, with absolute aesthetic freedom.

Event Details

When is the contemporary? What is theatre? What are theatres? Where is
Europe? What is a nation? Who are “we”? We are surrounded by questions
and crises or potential crises. Our systems, political, financial and
artistic, hang by a thread. And this colloquium “Theatre in Crisis and
the Crisis of Europe”, is just an attempt to reflect on the
(im)possibilities of theatre, to think about the worth of theatre as a
vibrant form of public dialogue in an era of “connected” individualisms.

The discussion will be held in Greek, English, German and the attendance will be open to the public.
