Social Design Exhibition
On view from 9-10 October 2010 at Yoga Bala venues (5-7 Riga Palamidou St, Psyrri) and the adjoining pedestrian precinct.Featuring socially sensitive posters of scientific and artistic interest, the exhibition brought poster designing and social concerns together and explored how this art contributes to triggering rapid social change to our everyday world. The exhibition illustrated Greek and foreign artists’ interest in designing for social, rather than commercial, purposes. It aimed to foster active collaboration and fruitful exchange of ideas between designers and social service agencies. Visitors to the festival had the chance to meet with the work of Luba Lukova and Nuno Coelho, two of the world’s top designers, as well as with that of Greek designers, both through the tribute paid to ‘Dimiourgika Kimata’ (Creative Waves), an action created by the Greek Graphic Designers Association, and through individual contributions. Thinkpublic and Identitades Social Design Agencies, based in England and Mexico respectively and specializing in social design services, also took part in the exhibition.
Socially Sensitive Games Exhibition
Enjoying the hospitality and comfort the couch-furnished exhibition space offered, many of the visitors got the chance to spend some more time playing the two socially sensitive games ‘With No Taboos’, designed by Haroula Karatza, Nikolaos Pesyridis and Ilias Tsiridis, and trying to solve the social puzzle made by Yianna Thodi.
Dance and Theater Events
The 4th ‘Art4More’ Festival, in association with Viomatiki Skini group of Thyra Technis venue, featured a host of events and improvisational performances starting at Thyra Technis and extending to the pedestrian precinct in Riga Palamidou Street. All the events were once again thematically linked to social issues and concerns, aimed to effectively intervene in and convert the city public space to a place of action and artistic expression.
