Promoting international artistic exchanges and sustainable development in Greece
Phoenix Athens is a non-profit gallery and residency space in Athens Greece that was started in November 2017. The Residency program, Villa Exarcheia hosts up to seven artists. The duration for residencies is typically between one and two months long.
A gallery program offers two spaces for exhibitions, allowing residents and locals to share their views about art and engage with the community. Phoenix Athens seeks to provide an inclusive and democratic model for the arts that might serve as a bridge between generations as well as communities of individuals. The project is guided by the belief that the challenges to be found in Greece present an exciting challenge and therefore as well, an opportunity for problem-solving, learning and growth.
Mentorship and guidance is provided to residents and invaluable networking opportunities are made available through the public programme. Artists in residence are asked to provide a talk or a workshop and exhibit their work in order to connect with and inspire the local community.
