Dear fellow artventurers
The idea of organizing an alternative camp derived from my love for Music, my Country and Lefkada island-my birthplace .
My 30 year experience as a musician and educator, showed me that a person best develops his skills and spirit when acting and living in nature.
Through outdoor activities and classes, participants will acquire knowledge and skills in the respective art topics, will learn how to work in teams, respect the nature, become more creative, get to know the location, the people, and the local tradition and culture.
My invitation concerns those who want to test their skills and exceed their potential but also, musicians, dancers, actors, teachers, who want to live a unique experience in charming Greek places and amazing locations, next to remarkable trainers from the global artistic community.
Welcome to our ARTVENTURE World…
