The underlying philosophy of the whole process is the active participation in the lessons, workshops, exhibitions, lectures, artistic happenings, outdoor activities and tours, as it is believed that the opportunity of acquiring knowledge through active participation is priceless.
Academics, scientists, established professionals and young artists will offer and share their knowledge, talent, skills and experience, building up interactive relationships.
The different art forms the participants will be involved in are: Animation, cinema, video, photography, painting and sculpture, theater, music, literature and dance.
The Internet widens and facilitates the participation of individuals, groups, academic bodies and institutions from all around the world, since it can internationalize any event and at the same time contribute to the development of a continuous, worldwide communication, and anglobal exchange of works and ideas among the participants.
The artists are asked to be inspired by the timeless legacy of Delphi on the fields of ideas, art, culture, and create contemporary interactive art works.
At the same time, events, activities and educational programmes are prepared to take place in the surrounding area of Delphi, in collaboration with local institutions, scientists and artists.
