Home BALTIZA work in progress - Children’ workshop
BALTIZA story.jpeg

We provided financial assistance to implement an educational program for 5th and 6th-grade students during the Home Baltiza work-in-progress exhibition.

The program aimed to involve children in creating boat models, which hold great cultural significance in Spetses.

This process helped the students gain knowledge and skills in artistic practices while also learning about an important aspect of their country's heritage.

The boat models were expertly crafted by Pantelis Korakis, a skilled wooden boat builder from Spetses, and the workshop was led by Marilena Kraniotis, an accomplished artist.

We completed eight "Metamyth©" sessions in August! ​ The sessions took place at the Hadziyianni Mexi Museum Spetses and at the Open Air Museum at Faros, where the sculptures of Natalia Mela are exhibited. ​

 

All proceeds have gone towards the maintenance of the Spetses Museum and Natalia Mela's sculptures. ​

 

We are thankful to the Archeological Society and The Spetses Museum staff, who opened the doors of the Museum for the first time to "Metamyth©" because it focuses on the quality of attention to self, to others, and the cultural context of the museum.
