The first 3D Street Art Festival


for children in South Evia of Greece!

 




"I dream of a country where I can draw all my dreams -in the third dimention- on the ground. Using nothing but chalk, without need of anything else. Far away from violence, racism, political games and vandalism. Simply lost in my own imagination.

On Friday 21st. of July 2017 at 7pm. young people at the age of 6-18 years old are invited to participate in our 3Dimentional street art painting project, as a part of Weak-end Festival, which will take place free of charge at the outdoor basketball court of Mantoudi in South Evia. The painting session will be filmed in order to encourage young people living in the coutryside to explore  new forms of art.


Weak.end Festival started in August 2015, formed and directed by Eva Lamprou (Ar Director, Media Producer of the non-profit Art Collective Film E films & art) in collaboration with  Exostis Bookshop and other local independent businesses.
Book exhibitions, photography, ceramics, local traditional products, as well as creative collage workshops, water sports, music events, drawing and comic competitions have been held for the last two years -free of charge- in Mantoudi of Evia island.

This year, we encourage young people based in the coutryside to create their own pieces of Art in three-dimentions (3D Street Art)



A few words about Street Art:


Street Art began in the mid-19th century as a form of gang expression and reaction. Nowadays, the new wave of Street Art is far away from this idea. It is a new form of art that does not aim of vandalizing public property, but is perhaps one of the most direct ways of expression in society. Institutions, organizations and museums have hosted famous artworks made by street artists all over the world.

The international recognition of street art worldwide has not only helped the increase of popularity of the new Street Art but has encouraged and inspired a new wave of artists of all ages to transform the gray street color  into something alive.

So if you are curious enough to learn more and want to participate in this three-dimensional project, sign up and get your free ticket either from Exostis Bookshop in Mantoudi, or electronically at www.exostis.com/3D-street-art
