The EUphoria walks introduce us to the concept, philosophy and mission of Eleusis 2021 European Capital of Culture. Under the title “Transition to EUphoria”, the programme of Eleusis 2021 focuses on the connection of art and everyday life; on the ways art can become a central tool for changing the city.
The programme of Eleusis 2021 includes three Main Themes, that focus on the connection of art and environment (EUnvironment), art and society (EUrbanisation), art and labor (The EU Working Classes) and can be traced territorially, dividing the city in three major axes: Central Eleusis, Upper Eleusis and Lower Eleusis respectively. The Walks of EUphoria compose the multiplicity of narratives and collective experience in the city, with the different elements of the urban landscape and the works included in the programme of the European Capital of Europe.
There will be two Walks:
- Upper & Central Eleusis
Visit in Central and Upper Eleusis that relate to the Themes of the artistic programme EUrbanisation and EUnvironment respectively.
Dates: 17 March, 14 April, 19 May, 23 June
