ARTWORKS is a nonprofit organization that aims to create a fertile and nurturing environment for Greek artists through funding and public engagement opportunities.
With the 2018 inauguration of the SNF Artist Fellowship Program, ARTWORKS has been awarding monetary prizes to individual artists in recognition of their artistic skills and qualifications. The purpose of these awards is to empower the Fellows and encourage them to reflect, explore and experiment with their artistic practice. Apart from financial support, the Program offers free seminars and workshops to stimulate dialogue and creativity. The long-term goal is to create a dynamic alumni network, a support system that will promote interaction among artists, communities and institutions.
Until now, ARTWORKS has implemented two Programs, supporting 140 people - visual artists, cinematographers, dancers/choreographers and curators.
ARTWORKS was founded in 2017 and is supported by its founding donor, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
