Mind the fact

workshops / festival

Mind the fact is a new model of high standard performance productions and exhibitions which highlight the harsh living conditions many people face in Athens. All of these stories are narrated by current and former Athenian residents.

It has been the work of professional artists, many of whom have backgrounds in documentary filming and fine arts, that engage with marginalized communities to showcase thier artwork and give a voice to some of the most vulnerable people in Athens.

The Mind the fact workshops deal with current social issues, many of them pertaining to the living conditions of low-income individuals. They are offered for free to residents, provided the participants have a relevant experience with the subject of the workshop.

Mind the fact has been the result of the collaboration between Polyplanity Productions, NGO Amaka and Synergy-o cultural centre with extensive support coming from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
