Encounter of Youth: the Colors of Peace

Encounter of Youth: the Colors of Peace

Nick Neskes

WHAT: Mexican artists Alfredo ‘Libre’ Gutierrez and Jaime Carbo join Greek artists Nikos Neskes and SimpleG to convert a tram into a moving gallery. Using street art as a powerful communicating tool to promote cultural dialogue and artistic exchange between Greece and Mexico, the artists will also dress four walls of the Eirini metro station in their signature styles. The Eirini metro station has a prominent symbolic significance not only because of its name but also because it is the access point to the Athens Olympic Stadium, which was built to gather different nations to celebrate their common values of friendship and unity. Organized by the Mexican Embassy in Greece, supported by the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation (AMEXCID), Tram SA and the School of Fine Arts under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture and Sport, the artists will speak jointly at the Fine Arts School on Thursday 11 October at 7.00 pm.

WHEN:  Thursday 11 October at 7.00 pm.

WHERE: The Fine Arts School

Pireos, Ag. Ioannis Rentis 182 33
