A participatory work of art that celebrates the coexistence of communities in Athens
The team A-typical in collaboration with the NGO Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity bring in Athens the project of renowned street artist JR.
Inside Out Athens aims to underline the diversity of Athens and its multicultural character, claiming in its own way an equal coexistence of all members of society.
Through two photography workshops, we want to achieve the creation of a collaborative work of art from citizens of Athens of migratory decent. The participants will photograph each other and then their portraits will be pasted in selected buildings and surfaces around the city. This ephemeral work of art in the public space will create a platform for the rights of immigrants and their children. At the same time, an exposition of all photographs will take place at the “Communitism” Gallery.
