Syn Festival 2016 – Across the Mediterranean Exhibition + Film Screenings

Friday 11th March - Saturday 19th March 2016
10am - 5pm

Launch event: Friday 11th March, 7pm – 9pm
Short film screenings + Q & A session:  Sat 12th March, 5pm – 8pm

The exhibition aspires to promote the emergent contemporary artistic scene of Edinburgh, whilst offering at the same time the possibility of exploring a controversial du jour issue as a topic of artistic research. Additionally, the exhibition aims not only to raise awareness and ignite dialogue about the current refugee crisis, but also to contribute to the effort of the public Edinburgh based initiatives that are taking place at the moment and are working directly with refugees.  Donations collected during this year’s festival will be given to volunteer groups working with refugees in Greece in collaboration with Solidarity Quo in support of their endeavor to aid refugees both locally and in other parts of Europe and the Mediterranean.

Syn Festival is a volunteer run multi-arts annual festival initiated in 2013 by the Hellenic Society of the University of Edinburgh. Throughout its course it supported and promoted a variety of exhibiting and performing arts including photography, painting, illustration, film, mapping projection, theatre, physical theatre, dance, music of different genres and influences, as well as a selection of experiential and skill-providing art workshops.
