καλώς ήρθες Σοφία (Welcome Sofia)

The residency of Sofia Petsa Poutouri, a young Greek artist selected by the Art is Us project to spend 10 days in Rome with Melting Pro to work with the Tor Pignattara community, is now underway.

Sofia is a visual artist and ceramicist. With a background as a surgeon, through her art she tries to raise awareness on issues related to migration and, in particular, the refugee crisis.

Her aim is to show the difficulties people face during migration as they fight for their lives at sea.

During the residency, Sofia will meet artists, creatives, artisans, representatives of local communities and associations active in the Tor Pignattara area and beyond.

At the end of her residency period, in a pop-up exhibition/event she will tell us how the dialogue with the city of Rome has enriched her vision on migration.

Follow us for details on the event scheduled for next week.


Thank to our greek partner Association Balloon People.
