ART EN ROUTE 2018 – 3rd Pancretan Street Art Festival – Open invitation to artists

ART EN ROUTE 2018

The Municipality of Heraklion and our volunteers, with the support of the

Region of Crete, the Heraklion Port Authority, the FORTH-Hellas Institute of Computer Science, the Architects’ Association of Heraklion Prefecture

and the Heraklion Traders’ Association, are preparing

 the 3rd Pancretan Street Art Festival in Heraklion:

Open invitation to artists

         Following the resounding success of the Festival for the second year running, the Organising Committee has begun to prepare next year’s Art En Route 2018 Festival. With the intention, as always, of promoting our artistic potential, raising public awareness of artistic creativity and attracting foreign artists and visitors, the Festival opens on 2 July, once again transforming our city into a great open stage of artistic expression, live creativity and fun. Over the five days of the Festival, artists of all kinds (painting, icon-painting, graffiti art, sculpture, music, theatre, dance, performance, cinema, video art, photography and more) are invited to offer the public the chance to get to know them and their work, in selected open-air or indoor areas of the city, allowing the people of Heraklion to watch the creative process live and up close.

To allow participants plenty of time to prepare, the Deputy Mayor for Culture and the Volunteers of Heraklion Municipality, together with the Region of Crete, the Heraklion Municipal Public Benefit Enterprise, the FORTH-Hellas Institute of Computer Science, the Architects’ Association of Heraklion Prefecture and the Hellenic Photographic Society, who are sponsoring the Festival this year, extend an open invitation to art groups and individual artists wishing to attend. Please apply by filling in the Festival participation form with details of your ideas and proposals by 28 February 2018, either on the Festival website (http://culture.heraklion.gr/registrationform) or at the Heraklion Municipality Artistic Director’s office in the Youth Centre (2 Androgeo Street, weekdays 11:00-13:00.
