INITIATION IV - AIR IN ATHENS FOR JEWELLERY ARTISTS & DESIGNERS

After the successful completion of our first Athens AIR & Workshops series for Jewellery Artists/Designers (2015-2018), we announce a new series of intensive one-week-long Artist Residencies including curated visits in major art and jewellery collections, as well as creativity boosting "Story Telling & Performance" workshops.
The programme addresses international jewellery artists and designers who wish to understand the very origins, functions and meaning of jewellery and find inspiration in the rich tradition of Greek jewellery art and spirituality - concepts / uses / motifs / symbols.
The curated visits at ten museum collections and archaeological sites along with in situ lectures on anthropology / mythology / history / art aim at adding background, context, meaning and purpose in the residents' own work. The AIR programme ambitions at enabling residents to understand the present significance of Greek world heritage for their career and fuel the urge for innovative jewellery.
The AIR programme is enriched by a Story Telling & Performance Workshop to boost creativity. Residents are also introduced in the highly didactic "Success Stories" of Greece's internationally established jewellery houses, while insider information on the international jewellery art scene may help them to map their own strategic itinerary.
Residents are also briefed on further possibilities to show work - in solo or group shows - in Athens, Munich (Munich Jewellery Week 2019), Berlin 2019 projects by >>> ZLR Betriebsimperium.
