Titled “I am… How I see myself”, this year’s seventh annual drawing contest invites our young friends to present themselves to the world as they see themselves, starting with a mirror.
After last year’s hugely successful contest with 23,000 participants, the Museum of Cycladic Art once again invites children aged 4-15 years (preschool, grade school, and junior high school) to take inspiration from a Cypriot bronze mirror dating to 1200-1050 BC and displayed on the Museum’s third floor Cyprus – Ancient Art and Culture section.
For this competition, the Museum of Cycladic Art will collaborate for the first time with the Athens Conservatoire, which will host the exhibition of children’s works in May, and with the International Kalamata Dance Festival: participants from Kalamata will also show their work at the Kalamata Dance Megaron in July, as part of the 26th International Kalamata Dance Festival’s events!
