The Fulbright Artists Talks Series
Please note that the for today November 2nd scheduled event “The Fulbright Artists Talks Series” is postponed for technical reasons.
Soon you will be informed about the new date of the event.
The Fulbright Foundation in Greece, in collaboration with the Careers Office of the Athens School of Fine Arts, invites alumni from the Fulbright Artists Programs to Circuits & Currents, Project Space of the Athens School of Fine Arts (Notara 13 & Tositsa Streets), for a short presentation of their work and a roundtable discussion on their U.S. experience as a Fulbright grantee.
Purpose of the meeting is to clarify to potential candidates – students and alumni of the Athens School of Fine Arts – concepts such as ‘affiliation’ and ‘exchange’ through personal accounts. Artists will talk about their host institutions, the importance of studying abroad, lessons learned from the U.S. – professionally, technically, socially, etc. -, academic and/or professional benefits, and collaborations and projects that flowed from their U.S. stay.
After a brief introduction to the Fulbright scholarship program for artists (including graduate and doctoral students, artists, and artist residency) by Greek Program Coordinator, Els Siakos Hanappe, the stage will be given to the Fulbright alumni artists:
Tuesday, November 1, 2016, 18:00: Visual Arts
Wednesday, November 2, 2016, 18:00:: Performing Arts
The audience is welcome to interact with the speakers during the discussion rounds.
