ATHENS – The cultural organization ARTENS offers online art and culture seminars in Greek including a Cultural Communication Seminar with Aris Asproulis, sociologist, playwright and Director of Communication & Promotion at the Karolos Koun Art Theater in Athens.
Courses start in late April with classes every Thursday 6-8 PM. There are 11 lessons and those interested can register online:http://artens.gr/portfolio-items/politistiki-epikinonia.
Asproulis’ course will focus on theoretical approaches and practical issues, work tools,and communication techniques. The aim is for the participants to get a complete picture of how the communication of an artistic action is built from the beginning to the end: from the construction of the news and the creation of the image-identity, to the compilation of the press release, to the setting up of photography and editing images, finding communication sponsors and booking interviews, and so on.
In the last hour of the class, Asproulis will host, via live connection from his home, a special guest from the field of culture, who with their experience will illuminate aspects of Cultural Communication which are considered useful for the full understanding of the concepts and practices that are developed in the lesson.
Guests (in no particular order) include: Karolos Koun Art Theater Artistic Director Marianna Kalbari, Athinorama Theater Critic Tonia Karaoglou, InfoWoman Chief Editor of Culture Georgia Economou, Athens Voice Editor Errika Roussou, actress Vasiliki Troufakou, and actor Miltiadis Fiorentzis.
