Among the Ants
Among the Ants (AtA) was founded in November 2009 with the aim to create artistic projects at an international level. Since then, AtA have collaborated with art groups, individual artists and cultural organizations for the realisation of festivals, artistic residencies, artists’ meetings, workshops, conferences and performances, in Greece, Cyprus, Denmark, Sweden and the UK.
In 2012, we have decided to broaden our activities and collaborate with people and organizations from the fields of Education, Technology and Science.
Using Art as a vehicle, we aim to make an open call to all, and thus trigger a creative dialogue with society.
Art can be exquisite; magic; impulsive; and only then it becomes breathtaking, relevant with its audience;
how else could it be?
