Cycladic Youth Gaze
The program funded by Cycladic Identity consists of a cinematic educational workshop for secondary school students in Ios. It addresses an invitation to the teenagers of the island to get involved with the Fine Arts, in particular with the art of cinema and through specialized, audio-visual, experiential activities, to shoot a one-minute, single-shot video art piece each, in order to reveal the invisible side of their island by creating their own work of art, through a “mosaic” of recordings.
The program’s activities include theoretical and technical training of the participants, shooting and editing of the produced material, and public presentation of the work. The program will foster the exploration of the island’s contemporary identity, its landmarks, local history, landscape architecture, art, and diverse perspectives beyond the academic framework.
The video art will be showcased as a long durational installation in a selected public area of the island.
