The motive for the definition of the thematics of this year’s Summer Workshop, has been the highly significant fact of the appointment of the city of Pafos as the Cultural Capital of Europe for 2017, along with the city of Aarhus in Denmark.

The research framework and the methodology that characterizes the Summer Workshop 2016, is founded on the repetitive practice of specific trips and quick wanderings in the city by the participants, with the aim of recognizing in space, and registering on maps, sketches, photographs, sound recordings, or video, spots which may present a specificity, historical, aesthetic, architectural, social or other. A specificity which, although of high importance, it is nevertheless somewhere hidden. Their recognizing and indication is left to the members of each group of participants, and depends critically on their awareness, and sensitivity.

This initial registration will be followed by the design and application of ideas and proposals which will be about ways and means through which these small, hidden spatial events, will be uncovered and presented to the public.
