This initiative investigates new ideas in the field of sound, visual and
performance art. Off Borders Festival, intends to provoke conversations
into the intercultural coexistence among the dipole artists & audience.
Wondering where the periphery starts and where the center, strong
proponent of DIY culture (do it yourself), we aspire to create another
node in the DIY world network and develop communication channels having
intercultural exchange as their main goal.
Our goal is the integration of the periphery into the
internationalization process of contemporary art. Sounds, Pictures and
Movements create a meeting point in Greece, disseminating frequencies
across Europe and nearby countries.
Bridging the gap: Greece-Iran-Germany
The OFF BORDERS FESTIVAL wants to establish itself as an out of bounds 2
day event at the city of Thessaloniki. This year we aim to invite young
