Synergyo Collaborator - NGO AMAKA
Collaborator for Station Athens program

Amaka is a team that loves art. Our aim is the organization and operation of art therapy workshops which appeal to under privileged social groups.

"In seconds the world starts spinning and everything turns upside down, colours intermingle and sounds dissolve. I see the blue sky. I hide for a short while in places that fill me with beauty. When I come back from the journey everything is possible again… I smile.
Αmaka, means hammock. Leisure-Creation-Movement.

We are Amaka. A team that loves art and uses the creative process of art for amusement, knowledge, therapy, living.

We met again in the Athens of 2008 following a series of independent traveling and personal analyses of the world. Our aim is the organization and operation of art workshops which appeal primarily to young people living urban lives, to immigrants, to under privileged social groups and to all who feel the need to express themselves through art.

The main form of expression, the meeting point at the start of the journey, is to make multiple use of new technologies.

Our goal is to lift social exclusion and isolation and to cultivate social skills and knowledge in an open environment of creative learning, acceptance and cooperation. Our platform for the implementation of these goals is the intercultural education programs and therapy through art."
