Elena has a big love for our island and has been here three times. This time she came with her ukulele, as well as art materials. She did lots of filming in her short stay. Soon we hope to have some photos of her ink drawings of Lakkos. Here are some links to films she made in and around Heraklion.
Also she painted a mural.
Often we take residence on road trips. This trip we headed to the beaches in the south and stopped off at the ancient city of Gortyna. With us was Elena Duff, Angela Maasalu, Joey Gavin and Antonis Tsirikoudis. Also on the trip we went to Matala beach and an apple festival in the mountains.
Joey came to stay at the residency to write and record new music. At the end of his stay he put on a concert with local Odysseas Grammas. The event took place in the basement of Diartiriteo. The night started quietly but by the end of the show the venue was packed!

Angela came to stay at the residency in September. During her time here she made a mural in the Lakkos area and produced many paintings and drawings. At the end of her stay she had a solo exhibition with the local gallery Da.
