ABOUT THE CLASS

What does the ancient world have to teach us?

The Cathartic Narrative – Art as a Restorative force.

Catharsis; A purgation, purification, or clarification which comes from encountering and experiencing transformative emotional and personal connections through Art that result in renewal and restoration.

On the island of Kefalonia, participants will be invited on a series of individual and group encounters with the landscape, ancient sites, people, history and stories, to stimulate individual and collective responses and projections from their own artistic field.

Free to create individually or collaborate on collective projects, artists will have the opportunity to exhibit and perform their work at the Ionion Centre for Arts and Culture.
