Project Description
Project Description

The project “Ioannina and contemporary art” is funded by the Operational Program “Information Society”.

The aim of the project is to identify and select contemporary artists, particularly in the broader region of the city of Ioannina. The result will be a unique list of artists which will represent a cultural map of the prefecture of Ioannina.

The information of each listed artist consists of personal details, extended curriculum vitae as well as representative photos of their work of arts. The whole information will be provided through a web portal while at the same time a number of exploitation and dissemination activities will raise acknowledge to the public.

Artists will take advantage from these actions as their work will be promoted on a world wide basis. In addition, general public will have the opportunity to explore the contemporary art of Ioannina.
