'The Lakkos Project'
An ongoing project, which aims to bring life to a forgotten part of Heraklion's large old city.
The truly beautiful village of Ano Assites has asked the Lakkos project to help them get people to visit the village. We will be doing murals and all kinds of artistic interventions there.
The second event we held in the village was a live painting one. Silsil from Japan painted while a local played experimental music next the the village square. After the live painting there was a play put on by the locals. Guest artists
