STUDENT ENGRAVING COMPETITION DEDICATED TO
100 YEARS SINCE THE ASIA MINOR DISASTER
Student drawing competition for engraving works on the theme: “100 YEARS FROM THE MIKRASSIAN DISASTER: Refugee – Society – Creation” is organized by the Municipality of Nice – St. I. Rentis and the Open Etching Workshop, which operates in cooperation with the Chamber of Fine Arts of Greece (E.E.T.E.).
The purpose of the competition is to give children the opportunity to seek and showcase their skills in artistic creation and expression, studying in depth the causes and consequences of the Asia Minor Catastrophe of 1922, as well as the imprint that this event left on the city of Nice, while at the same time they have the opportunity to get to know the art of engraving by working in an organized workshop.
Students are invited to reflect and work creatively inspired by this particular historical period. Research centres and sources of inspiration can be refugee narratives, historical archives, photographic and audiovisual material, literary books and others. In this effort they can cooperate with relevant institutions, associations, refugee associations, museums, etc. All participants will receive certificates of participation. Drawings selected by professional engravers will be turned into engravings, while three drawings will be awarded at a special ceremony organised by the Municipality of Nikaia-St. I. Rentis. The competition is open to children aged 6-18 years old and works can be submitted until 15 April.
