8 years Τ.A.F. / The Art Foundation

T.A.F. / The Art Foundation, the pioneering cultural centre in Athens with its beloved courtyard opened its doors in 2009 and this May celebrates its 8th birthday.

During these 8 years T.A.F has been established as an open platform for cultural production and action, while being a key social site where people gather and socialize all year-round, 7 days a week. T.A.F constitutes a point of reference in the cultural map of Athens; An independent space for unexpected artistic projects, experimental exhibitions and creative collaborations.

Based on participatory culture, experimentation and cross-disciplinary exploration, while aiming at the active engagement of the audience, T.A.F. continues to operate as a continuously evolving formation within urban networks. The organisation seeks to establish extended partnerships with communities of creators across a wide cultural spectrum, whilst building a substantial relationship with its audience through a multi-faceted program.

Travellink Project

Consisting of the words “travel” and “ink”, Travellink is coming to travel you with colours and ink.Twenty creative studios, freelance graphic designers and illustrators choose their favourite city and each one of them designs an inspired poster.

T.A.F./ The Art Foundation’s bartenders create a cocktail for each poster, sharing the same name and character. Each city becomes a poster, each poster becomes a cocktail. 
In the same time, AKTO Art & Design College Photography students draw inspiration from their favourite cities, build their sceneries and capture them. They present “Landscape Travellink” at one of T.A.F’s special rooms.

Luv ’n’ Roll is moving from Melissia to T.A.F’s gallery during the opening party in order to install their corner in the context of World Piercing Day.

Participants: alati design atelier, Charis Tsevis, Christina Tsevis, Cloudtrap, Corn Studio, Dimitra Karagianni & Panos Myriagkos, Elena Baka, Katerina Angelikaki & Thalassinos Anastasiou, Katerina Miliaraki, Marianna Pefani, Marios Balaskas, Mike Karolos, Mikela Argyriadou, Slab, Stavros Damos, Sugahtank, Thanasis Kamenidis, Theo Kontaxis, Vasilis Palas, Virginia Andronikou
