2nd ‘Art for More’ Festival 2008

Friday, 3rd October and Saturday, 4th October 2008

Take a look at some of the 2nd ‘Art4More’ Festival’s highlights.

The 2nd ‘Art for More’ Festival was run by K.S.D.E.O. Edra at Art House intimate venue (46 Konstantinoupoleos St, Gazi) from 3-4 October 2008. The aim was to raise public awareness of mental health. The festival was held to pay tribute to the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue and celebrate World Mental Health Day (10th October). ‘ART free from DISCRIMINATION’ served as its central message.

The festival featured a large number of events including information provision, plays, movies and concerts. High figures of attendance and the immense enthusiasm of participating artists bore clear testimony to the fact that art can contribute significantly to maintaining, enhancing and regaining mental health by challenging prejudice, lack of information and stigma around mental ill-health – all three being the breeding ground for social discrimination. ‘Mental Health is a Philosophy of Life’ was the key target of the festival, and participants and visitors alike seemed to be right on it.

Edra would like to express its appreciation to all visitors, individual artists and groups who offered their unconditional support, partners and sponsors for their contribution to the success of the festival.
