2nd Training workshop “Wind Stories”

The 2nd training workshop entitled "Wind Stories will be held on 2 & 3 November

The G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation organizes the 2nd training workshop with the title “Wind Stories” on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 November, with the aim of guiding the students of Agios Nikolaos, Crete, in the world of contemporary art.

The workshop is addressed to secondary education students and is designed to focus on the content, research, design and production process of the project entitled Come With The Wind completed in the summer of 2019 at Minos Beach art hotel, by the artist Theodoros Zafeiropoulos and the architect Yorgos Rimenidis, winners of the Art Prize G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation – Artists-in-Residence Program.

The goal of the workshop is through the Visual Arts and Architecture, students to think and devise different ways of representing the winds. With the main theme of how to turn such a broad cosmological subject into a contemporary piece of art, students will focus on the design and construction of a 3D sculptural model.

The key is for students to communicate, collaborate, exchange experiences through interaction and collective effort, to experiment with the concepts of space, sound, proportion, composition, landscape. The basic principle of the workshop is the activation of visual perception, the cultivation of positive feelings for Art, to become familiar with complex techniques, with artists, movements and various forms of artistic expression.

The educational program will be implemented twice, on Saturday 2 and Sunday November 3 at the Minos beach art hotel.

  • Program starts: 10:00 am
  • Program ends: 14:00 pm

The overall curriculum includes:

  • Presentation of artists’ works, duration: 1 hour
  • Walk and tour in the Come with the Wind project, duration: 30 minutes
