Our non-profit organization has been active since 2011. The purpose of the organization is to contribute to get the performing arts center position in education (formal or no-formal) and also to contribute to the search of approaches and techniques for theater as an art form and as educational tool. The organization places great emphasis on the development of educational and cultural projects in the promotion of non-formal and informal education, social and creative entrepreneurship and networking between organizations, to share experiences and enhance their potential.
Main activities of the organization are:
• Organization and participation of local and international practices, drama workshops, seminars, conferences and other training activities, as in the evaluation workshops, promotion and diffusion of effective practices
• Organization and implementation of programs in and out of schools
• Organization and participation in research groups
• Publishing of books, periodicals, educational material, studies or publications
• Organization and participation in artistic productions and cultural events
• Create networks of partners to promote the arts in education and in all matters related to the purposes of the Association
The objectives of the organization accelerated through the implementation of regional and international actions, always with the initiative and participation of young people in all stages of operations. The projects of the association are innovative and provide a variety of learning opportunities in the educational activity.
In the association there is not employed paid staff, but works with the support of youth volunteers . Volunteers are people from all social and cultural classes, without any distinction, and are also the target group of the organization. Members of the organization include people who have experience and expertise in the organization, implementation and monitoring of festivals, conferences, bilateral and multilateral projects, but also people with a university education, including Education and Social Policy graduates: Adult Education (Specialist in Continuing education and Consulting), Law, Psychology, Literature, Social Worker and other specialties that are necessary when one deals with young people.
The organization is located in Thessaloniki, the second largest city in Greece, a city of one million with the largest number of youngsters due to many universities that exist in the city. The city in history has been the crossroads of cultures and movements, with a strong position on the world map. Also in modern history has been the capital of culture and youth, leaving a rich legacy to future generations, but also a great obligation to continue to respond to what has been build so far. ()

Our organization is located in one of the most important monuments of the modern city, the an old factory in the city port area. A capacity building for 500 people, a legacy that counts more than 200 years history that extends over 30 acres, has hosted many artistic performances, exhibitions and events.
Such a building needs daily maintenance, apart from maintenance, helpers can get involved in our ongoing art projects, if they have a skill they would like to share we could help them teach and pass on their skill (the lessons will be offered free of charge to the people of the city), we are active with a rewarding recycling project as well as upcycled arts and could use a helping hand in several areas (including graphic design, fundraising, project writting, proofreading e.t.c.)
What we need:
Helpers who can:
We have projects that need handy people to help fix things at the studio. Fixing chairs, building out of pallets, building raised bed gardens, etc. If you are handy with tools and creation, skilled and known for being a fixer-upper, we would love to hear from you!
If you have any skill that you think would be excellent for a workshop (Dance, yoga, pilots, theatre, design, crafts, art, etc etc etc anything really) We would love to receive a proposal of your workshop and then length of time for this workshop for our consideration. We are also particularly interested in projects that can be part of a street performance festival! but we are open to receiving any type of proposals.
If you have skills including graphic design, fundraising, project writing, proofreading e.t.c., we would love to hear from you! We regularly need someone who is able to create media for the studio's promotion, public relations documents, updating the website/facebook page, and promoting the events.
Summer Manager(s) 2015 - longer term position
We are also interested in hearing from any person/persons who would be interested in a summer stay. We are setting up summer festivals in another location. We are interested in having people who would be interested in having an orientation of the Studios workflow and programming - who would be willing to take on the managing position while we are taking care of festivals.
This Position would include answering emails, opening and closing the building, maintaining spaces, welcoming guests/participants, and scheduling the other workaday guests.
Two persons would be ideal so as to break up the work for the day and be able to have regular time off.
It would be beneficial if you could speak Greek , if not we will find a way to work around that :)
