KanenaMellon by the children of Greece
After the first workshop in Maroussi Athens with children "from the ancient city of Corinth".
The Berlin Kreuzberg Biennale has initiated several drawing workshops for children in Greece.
The workshops are realised in collaboration with the Museum of Cycladic Art Athens and several social institutions.
KanenaMellon is greek for NoFuture. The children are invited to make drawings, paintings and objects that reflect their perception of their daily life and their future.
The workshops are both an attempt to give an opportunity to the weakest victims of our european reality to have some days of joyful life and a research on the deep impact that this crisis will have on the development of a future in Europe.
Two collages from the children "from the ancient city of Corinth".

THE SMILE OF THE CHILD is a non-profit voluntary Organisation. It is based on sentiment and emotions but it goes beyond that and turns everything it represents into actions. As its main objective, the Organisation deals with the daily problems children encounter.
The Organisation’s main concern is defending children's rights, not just on paper but in practice as well, providing services to children on a 24-hour, 7 days a week, 365 days a year-basis, working for their physical, mental, and psychological stability. THE SMILE OF THE CHILD cooperates closely with state authorities (Police, the General Attorney’s Office, hospitals etc.) but also with all responsible individuals wishing to contribute to alleviating issues affecting children.As a voluntary Organisation, THE SMILE OF A CHILD supports all relevant institutions so as to promote their efficiency in handling children’s issues.
