topos:lefkada is a community Art Action project that invites the local people/ residents of the island of Lefkada, the general public and artists to participate in art and culture activities and create original works that have as a starting point a common place, Lefkada.
The activities of the project include experiential digital art workshops, open and free for the public and are implemented from November 2020 – March 2021 in a digital environment, film screenings and discussions.
The action aims to create a multimedia space that will express the place through collective processes, network local art groups with similar ones in other parts of Greece, highlight the local cultural heritage and artistic production and provide a platform of open artistic dialogue.
topos:lefkada is an open call to Act. Starting with shared experiences and common ground, artists and participants will explore the possibilities of digital culture for sharing stories, ideas and creativity, enabling the wider audience to participate as well.
