The city of Soufli in northern Greece once lay along the Silk Road. It was an important European centre for silk production in the 19th century and still maintain this industry, from larvae to finished fabric, albeit on a smaller scale. In this unique environment, the Swedish Institute at Athens brings together students from Konstfack, the Stockholm University of Arts, Craft and Design, and students from the corresponding Athens institution Athens School of Fine Arts.
We are happy to announce that we continue our collaboration with the jazz departments of Music Studies at Ionian University and Fridhems Folkhögskola, organizing a digital jazz concert and two workshops for their students on Friday, December 18.
