The festival is designed to be in tune with the city and its dynamics, inviting visitors to take an active role in the awareness process it suggests. Each year a new theme is chosen, which brings together contemporary international works from the fields of visual arts, music, cinema, architecture, theatre, dance, new media and design. Exhibitions, Workshops for Children & Adults, Screenings, Discussions, Events, Music Concerts, etc. are included in the 3-day program of the festival.At ART4MORE 2022, art is the means for man to find his otherworldly connection with nature.
The goal is to regain our mental health and ensure it for future generations who will experience the effects more intensely.
