Techonopos is happy and proud to introduce you its second festival of art. This friendly event took place at the hall of Thessaloniki on 12th and 13th September and gathered together families, children, teachers and several artists in order to meet each other and spend a good time around creative activities/meetings. The Welfare Corporation and the Artistic Education Group “Raft of the city” promoted this event: free entrance and good mood were the matter of the day.
Let’s find out what it deal with…
The programm of the two days was related to many fields of activities such as theatre, performances, kids games, painting, dancing, shows and more again.
We had the chance to interview the organizer: Argiro Skitsa, director of the organization.
She told us more about the values and the mind of the organization, which is especially about one word: open-mind.
Indeed, 30 people had been working for two weeks around that project of the festival.
One room is dedicated to many stands composed of several activities around artist promotions.
Another one in the next building which provide a scene dedicated of shows.
Tales, theatre, dancing, singing and playing guitar were the main shows offered.
Kids were playing outside, in a lovely atmosphere of bubbles and colors.
What is missing in the city ? Argiro wondered two years ago.
Art activities professional promoting their work. In fact, 40 groups of artists have the opportunity to improve their own business, share ideas and positive energy and improvements about education and childhood.
“The goal of the organization is above all about being more open-minded and flexible. That’s what we want to teach and learn as young and old generation all together. The matter would be fight more”, Argiro said concerning the current crisis in Greece and the future of the new generation.
Technotopos festival is a good mean to meet each other in a cultural and breezy way !
Good news !
The people especially the families are happy with this festival and enjoyed it. Indeed, there were twice more numerous this year.
So, what kind of improvement can be expected in the future ?
Bring more and more teachers is the answer. Share and gather people together is the best way to keep the city alive and push the families to get closer. And this is the reason why more parents and children will hopefully come back next year !
