Over the past 4 years Artists in Transit have worked to support new communities in Athens,Greece. Bringing art workshops to refugee children living in squats, temporary accommodation or camps.
With the current global health crisis limiting our capabilities as a group, we have put on hold all travel plans for 2020. We will be instead focusing our efforts on our immediate communities and where possible finding ways to connect with our friends in Athens & support local people.
ARTISTS IN ISOLATION
We are currently planning on delivering ongoing support to a local refugee charity ( LOVE TO LEARN ) by delivering art packs to vulnerable children and families. Each pack will include art materials and guidance for participation. Lead artists will create instructional videos and participation will be open to the public!
We are currently using left over donations for this project and to keep it going we will be relying on your kindness!
DONATIONS WILL GO TOWARDS:
-Lead Artist fee. In this current economic climate we feel it is best to offer a small discretionary fee to any artists taking part in order to support them.
- Extra costs to ensure products are delivered in a sanitised way.
