WORKSHOP by Dania Shihab

Friday May 10, 5pm, Hermoupolis (location to be announced upon signup)
Participants: up to 15 persons
Duration: approx. 2 hours
Working language: English

Shihab’s workshop involves the creation of a collective sound piece through audio recording and looping technologies. For the first part of the workshop participants will participate in a listening session, followed by a sound walking tour in Ermoupolis and a group composition exercise.

WORKSHOP by Amalia Vargas 

Saturday May 11, 12pm, Hermoupolis (location to be announced upon signup)
Participants: up to 8 persons
Duration: approx. 4 hours
Working language: English

Vargas proposes a photographic experience of capturing outdoors spaces in Syros with a pinhole camera. The workshop will be carried out in three stages: firstly, the construction of the camera, then the outdoor shots, and finally the development of the images. Vargas is interested in traditional and typical architecture that represents the island, with the aim of compiling a glossary of images that will inspire the sculptures she imagines to create during her residency.

WORKSHOP by Sarah-Anaïs Desbenoit

Tuesday May 14, 5pm, Hermoupolis (location to be announced upon signup)
Participants: up to 15 persons
Duration: approx. 2 hours
Working language: English

For her workshop, Desbenoit proposes the creation of a collective work through DV captures and sound recordings. After a brief presentation of her research and recording methodologies, the group takes a walk in various locations, making use of video and sound equipment provided. The resulting DV cassettes are then digitized and edited into a collaborative artwork. 

Communities Between Islands is a collaborative initiative involving Providenza in Corsica, France; Cherimus in Sardinia, Italy; and Archipelago Network in Syros, Greece.

A Creative Europe project funded by the European Commission, and realized with the support of the Goethe-Institut Athen and the J.F. Costopoulos Foundation.
