The Idea : The art is everytime around us, we just need to be careful and we will find art everywhere. The word « Artist » or « Art » can be difficult to define. Some people will say art need to have some rules and everyone is not able to create. But this project want to show that an artist is just someone who create something firstly for express himself and give him own vision of the world. Every participant of this project will say to you “I’m not an artist” but whatever they create something and is the most important because they show a better world. Let beyond the border of our imagination!!

Presentation artists:

"the simple way to happiness"
 Happiness is all around us. She hiding in the simple things in life. But it's in our arms if we will see her. So my photos are this time simple..just to let you see how easy is to smile..even in common moments.

-         Hamid Roshangar// Painting

" I put paint on the canvas until it looks like the sitter, then I add lines, shades n highlights from the memory to express my feelings about the sitter"

-         Konstandina Toska// Decoupage

Use paper patterns to change the look of objects from wood, paper, glass, stone, metalic or plastic surfaces.
It is colage with painting and we can use it everywere! Wherever we can paint we can also decoupage.
We stick paper patterns with special glue to an object and when it dryes we apply 4-5 times varnish to make it water proof.
Our only constraint the paper we use must be as thin as posible.

-         Sofia Kostea // Photography

My name is Sofia K. I am an amateur photographer for almost 5 years now. I love portrait photography. Every glance, smile and special-unique moment attract my interest and the "clicks" begin. I adore travelling, through that I reborn, I am filling up with energy and I am finding the real meaning of life. Colours, odours, sea breeze, light... are leaving their mark on my photos and are inviting you to travel for a few minutes both with your mind and heart... Have a Good Trip!!!

Adamantia-Nathalie Vlachogianni

« I want to be a fashion photographer it's one of my passions maybe.. But also i love travelling and i m trying to do as many trips i can
These photos are from my trips abroad »

Tasos Spiliotopoulos
My name is Tasos Spiliotopoulos, I’m 32 years old and photography is a way of expression for me. At the photos that I participate to this exhition, I present the filings that comes from the scenes on them. To those specific, I show the loneliness and the simplicity.

Antigoni Kourampa
"True love has to come easily, with a pure flow and stick inside you like a rock. That's photography for me. First time I touched the camera,the deal was shield. Being able to match my passions, hiking and photography is an indescribable feeling for me. Traveling and meeting with landscapes and people is a joy by itself but having the opportunity to "grab" the present moment and carry it with you for years ,anywhere, sharing the thoughts and images with others is priceless! As close to a time travel as it can get

Pavlina athanasopoulou

Patras BABY

For the week-end of the carnival, the group of EVS volunteers had planned long in advance to go to Patras, as we were told it was the biggest carnival of all Greece. We booked a hostel, with the help of local volunteers, we rented a van and left Kalamata on Friday evening to see for ourselves if it really was the biggest party we had ever seen or not.
Well it was.
There were so many people in the city centre that the party was everywhere, and on Friday night we only had to get in the crowd to enjoy ourselves. On Saturday we watched the parade that was so huge it took a couple of hours to see everyone, and at some point we decided to get inside and run and dance with everybody.
During this week-end we had a glimpse of this great city that Patras seems to be and we met Greek, Dutch or Bulgarian people that were all gathering with the same goal as us: be a part of this awesome carnival.
Some of us were sick, some fell, some were cold during the night but one sure thing is that we all had an amazing time together.
