Symbiosis Festival in Lesbos – Art workshops for refugees
This summer, the Lon-art team is going to Lesvos to be part of Symbiosis Arts Festival, a World Music and Arts festival that will link between cultures of the Mediterranean and approach the refugee crisis through the arts.
For this incredible event, we are designing different art workshops that we will lead during the day under the boiling Greek sun. When we were invited to be part of such an inspiring event, we did not think it twice, as Symbiosis represents everything we believe in and aim at as an organisation – the importance of art as a means to build bridges between cultures, to create social awareness and contribute to positive changes in society.
On this blog, we will be sharing regular updates on the organisation of the event and will also let you know all the details about the workshops we are organising. So stay in tune so that you don’t miss any of our upcoming posts!
In order to make this possible, we have set up a donation campaign and we will use all the money collected to buy the materials for the festival. So if you want to contribute to such an amazing cause, please donate – every penny will help.
And please, do go to the festival website to check out the line up that comprises bands from different Mediterranean countries and help us spread the word. And if you are free in August – do not hesitate to come join us
