People

Due to our current situation, we are a team of few enthusiasts, hardworking and passionate about art in all its forms. We are supported by local and international short & long-term volunteers, friends and family.

Most of what we do happens in collaboration with like-minded and through our social network – people from different backgrounds, professions and interest, ranging from artists & craftsmen, other cultural institutions & galleries, NGOs and individuals working in fields of culture, ecology, sociology, youth, farming, science, economy, media etc.

Depending on the needs of ongoing programs and specific projects (AiR or any other kind), we invite and welcome all sorts of collaborations. Two heads are better than one, and when spider webs unite, they can tie up almost anything.

So, who is holding the fort?
