Skopelos is a unique island with the contrast of light and color. It is the greenest island located in the Northern Sporades. The locals add to the extraordinary flavor of the island. Skopelos is a 5 ½ hour bus and ferry trip from Athens.

The mission of the Foundation is to promote the visual, performing and literary arts and education in the arts through cultural exchanges. Guided by the Hellenic history and culture, the Foundation will promote artistic dialogue between the Greek, American and International communities of artists.

The Foundation is set up to offer workshops from June through September and artist’s residencies from March through November. The Foundation also offer additional courses with the local students and ask that the resident artists, if at all possible, work with students one or two days to support the community in the arts.
