TRAVELLING EMBASSIES EUROTRANSIT
One of the topics of interest of the European Capital of Culture Donostia2016 ( San Sebastian), was the bridging of conflict and dispute. In this context, the project Travelling Embassies travelled to 10 different cities which have experienced similar issues, shedding light on crucial matters such as, the refugee crisis, ethnic conflicts and peaceful coexistence. The documentary on Cyprus is among those which will stand out, as we see people’s hopes for peaceful coexistence unfold through the eyes of the refugees, the creators and the residents.

WEAVING EUROPE: THE WORLD AS MEDITATION
This project deals with the art of weaving and critically examines the aspects relating to its history and its semiotics. The exhibition “Weaving Europe” explores the art of weaving as a historical practice, but also as a metaphor for the constant de-weaving and re-weaving of the European identity. Starting from the art of weaving, developed from ancient times, the project studies the correlations between historically formed weaving language and modern visual art practices, especially those relying on digital technologies and new media. The exhibition seeks to showcase ways in which modern art reinterprets the practice of creating objects from interweaving threads. The exhibition enjoys the participation of important international visual artists, among whom are: Κimsooja, Johan Grimonperz, Cat Mazza, Sabrina Gschwandtner, Fernando Sanchez Castillo, Cristina Lucas, Loukia Alavanou, Eva Borner, Francesca Fini, Anne Wilson, Janis Jefferis, Diane Wood Conroy, Sarah-Joy Ford, Nikos Gyftakis, as well as young acclaimed Cypriot visual artists Anastasia Mina, Christos Avraam, Yiannis Sakellis, Kyriakos Kousoulides, Anna Lytridou, Michalis Charalampous, Eleni Nicodemou, Erato Hadjisavva.
