Athens: A city, an ecosystem

For Middle & Highschool Students 

In nature's ecosystems, a balance is maintained between the organisms that make them up and the energy used. What would the future Athens look like if we saw it as an urban ecosystem? Could it be fueled by the energy of its population? What if waste could be a new raw material? The students, through a fast-paced design workshop, learn about the sustainable ecosystem of the SNFCC, about the sustainability practices followed worldwide and are invited to envision, design and build the model of the Athens ecosystem of the future.

Creating an Art zine

For third-grade Ηighschool students and senior Ηighschool students

Students get to know the process of producing a standalone edition (one shot zine) in the form of an artbook. The main content of this artbook is the identity of each student but also the collective identity of the teenagers. By identinty, meaning the imaginary projection of one-self in the present, in this case translated in artistic terms. Who am I? The question that students will be asked to answer through their visual representations will be "who am I?" or rather "who do I feel I am?". Utilizing mainly analog means and archival material of the SNFCC, the students manage to present personal, but also group narratives in an experimental mood. They come in contact with techniques for setting up a handmade zine, special printing techniques but also with the most basic ways of bookbinding.
