NEXT MEDSworkshop: MEDS SPETSES 2019, GREECE
Spetses is a greek island that combines historical richness, tradition and natural beauty. Through time, the island became extremely touristic and the consequences of tourism have aﬀected its identity. In order to serve the enormous numbers of tourists the island hosts each year, locals had to leave their traditional professions and are occupied with new jobs that refer to the island’s new touristic identity. So, traditional professions are currently dying.
“Memniso” in ancient greek means “remember”
The idea of the workshop is to bring these traditional professions together with contemporary crafts and design by exploring new capabilities and learning techniques from expert local craftsmen. The goals of the workshop are to not only learning from the locals, but also exchanging knowledge and sharing skills.
