The Tailor - made Atelier
The Atelier for Arts and Production Managers Elefsina-Beirut is implemented within the framework of Act for Global Change: A Global Conversation from the Arts to the World (ACT)’, supported by Creative Europe under the cooperation projects 2019 and by its organising partners Drosos Foundation, Eleusis 2021, Zoukak Theatre Company and Artlink.
Drosos Foundation is committed to enabling disadvantaged children, young people and young adults to take control of their lives and make a positive contribution within their community.
The Foundation promotes skills and creates living conditions which enable these people to fulfil their responsibilities. Drosos Foundation is convinced that life and technical skills are key elements in personal development. These skills help children, young people and young adults to be independent in the way they manage and take responsibility for their own lives.
Eleusis 2021 European Capital of Culture central idea is expressed by the motto "Transition to EUphoria".
The proposal of Eleusis focused on the question of sustainable development at social, environmental and economic/labour level: Eleusis becomes a laboratory to rethink the content and meaning of sustainable development. These three categories correspond to the three main themes of our programme: EUrbanization for the social challenges, The EU Working Classes for the economic / labour challenges and EUnvironment for the environmental challenge.
Zoukak Theatre Company
Zoukak Theatre Company was created in 2006 as a non-hierarchical structure, dedicated to theatre practice as a social and political involvement, with a belief in theatre as a space for common reflection and in collectivity as a position against marginalizing systems.
They position themselves outside the dominating discourses in their context through direct action within communities: making psycho-social theatre interventions through a special approach to drama therapy, taking place in emergency situations and beyond, working with incarcerated youths, children with multiple disabilities, women subjected to domestic violence, migrant domestic workers and other marginalized fractions of our society, while continuing to work with people affected directly and indirectly by war.
ArtLink Young Talents’ Festival
The purpose of the ArtLink Young Talents’ Festival is to bring together and link national and international musicians of the younger generation so as to support and promote their work.
The purpose of this “linking” and interaction of artists is both the presentation of the human potential and promotion of the most valuable and authentic art content within the Balkan region and for the Serbian society, thus helping to revive the musical and cultural drive of a modern Serbia – but also outside of it – reaching out international audiences.
Moreover, through cooperation with institutions and organizations of the public and the private sectors from the European Union area, it also seeks to establish regional and international fora through which art cooperation can transcend national borders, enriching the various audiences and helping further the reform, transition as well as the European integration processes.
