Cultural program in ANKAA Project
1908km - A cultural exchange between Luxembourg and Greece
supported by the Luxembourgish Ministry of Culture and "Fonds culturel national"
We see culture as the key to integration, a space for exchange and a way of expression.
The 1908km program invites artists to share their theoretical and technical knowledge.
For each module, artists from different nationalities will work together in order to mix influences and cultures.
A module is:
A duo of artists : one from Luxembourg and one from the Athens community
Classes and workshops to exchange knowledge and skills
Visits outside of ANKAA
Events linked to the theme of the module
Artistic creations for the final exhibition
During this module, participants will be invited to create their own media in order to express themselves throughout the program: this media can be a website, a newspaper, a radio station, a film etc. They will learn various techniques related to information sharing such as film making, sound recording or writing.
Food can tell a lot of stories. Through this module, participants share their own culinary culture and combine them with others. After learning various techniques, the team will be able to organise a dinner as a closing event. All the different recipes coming from all around the world will be printed in a book.
The photography class is a time to explore history; identities and means of visibility. The participants will learn about cameras, photography techniques, composition, frame, editing softwares and picture printing.
In this module participants have the opportunity to explore the various neighbourhoods of Athens and work on public space and history. The goal will be to collectively paint a building’s wall in order to leave a permanent mark in the city. This wall could be reproduced for the final exhibition.
