ERGO Collective is a creative platform founded on the premise of collaboration. We approach collective creativity as mode of encouraging dialogue and triggering stimulating ideas on the critique and collapse of borders between Art’s disciplines. Our team is formed by permanent and guest artists and other curious people from various places and spaces. Our journey began in a nomadic manner with an emphasis on site specific shows. Today ERGO occupies a physical space in Athens making its first steps as an artist-run-space. Our new space allows the collective to be more spontaneous on realizing projects, ideas and activities. To have a home, means to be a host and therefore ERGO is welcoming creatives from around the world to share and propose ideas on exhibitions, performances, workshops, symposia, screenings or any other intriguing event. ERGO Collective (Non-profit Organization) was initiated in September 2017.

ART RESIDENCY & EDUCATION FOR ARTISTS Snehta is a non-for-profit organisation that promotes and facilitates local and international artists through its residency, exhibitions and educational programmes in Kypseli, Athens. For the residency artists are selected through an open call who then spend two months researching in Athens under the guidance of the residency team and an established Athens based curator.

The programme is staffed by established Athens based artists with a strong and living artistic practice. SNEHTA – ATHENS IN REVERSE Snehta stands for the name of the City of Athens written in reverse. This name metaphorically suggests that the artists involved are to rediscover Athens by reading and translating it alternatively, observing and using the City’s local, social and cultural dynamics. Our work ethos is to reinforce participating artists to bring a renewed awareness of Athens through the works produced, exhibitions and events.

Phoenix Athens is a non-profit art gallery and residency in Athens that provides workshops and opportunities for local and international creatives to develop and showcase their practice in Greece. As a venue for art appreciation and education, Phoenix Athens also explores the innovative ways in which artists, thinkers and designers contribute to the well-being of societies and help to regenerate hope in communities. We provide local and international creatives to come and develop their professional practice within the dynamic community of Neapoli-Exarcheia in Athens through our residency program: Villa Exarcheia. We review residency applications to this program on an ongoing basis, and welcome proposals for collectives and academics to live, work and stay in this wonderful city. As both an artist and the director of Phoenix Athens, I am interested in collaborating with artists, designers and other members of the The Artist-Run Alliance who share a vital interest in transforming and benefitting societies through art and design.
