    The 2nd Santorini Biennale, is calling artists to study and explore causations and reasons countries are guided very often to violent actions (crisis - conflict - war development), and how the arts can create ’a mechanism’ against them.

    Political systems see Peace as a state of balance and harmony between individuals and populations in which respect means acceptance of differences, conflicts are resolved through dialogue, people’s rights are respected and their voices are heard, and everyone is at their highest point of serenity without social tension.

    The 2nd Santorini Biennale is to accept artworks in the following categories:

    Painting
    Architecture
    Industrial Design
    Photography
    Sculpture
    Drawing – Graphic – Illustration
    Cinema
    Installation Art
    Ceramic Art
    Paper Art
    Literature
    Poetry
    Gastronomy

    At this 2nd edition, the Biennale of Santorini will not appoint a Jury Commission. Visitors to the exhibition venues will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite work via an electronic system.

    Our mission is to promote both emerging and established artists that are working on the borders between different art disciples, allowing them to surpass the traditional (and perhaps limiting) concepts of classicism, modernism, contemporary and applied arts. The Santorini Biennale of Arts will be dedicated to hosting artist-led events presented in full co-operation with the organizers. The Santorini Biennale of Arts is inspired by the ways in which ideas are born and disseminated - how they then develop and diversify within our increasingly interconnected global society.
