Every summer since 2006, Music Village Arts Community has been transforming the medieval village of Aghios Lavrentios into a place of symbiosis through art, music performance and education, settled in a natural and architectural habitat of outstanding beauty.

Music Village is organised by arTree, a civil non profit partnership, supported by Demitriada Metropolis, the Local Society of Aghios Lavrentios, and the Greek Ministry of Culture.

This year, there will be 18 symbiotic workshops coordinated by 32 instructors with rich artistic, scientific and educational background, experts on sound, movement and theatre. All these workshops and projects will take place the last two weeks of August, bringing the art of sound in contact with the human body, technology, music production, theatre, dancing, speech, folk and intellectual oral tradition and improvisation. These subjects will inspire various and symbiotic projects, live performances and spontaneous events, as every year happens.

With great impatience, cheerfulness and expectation for live symbiosis, we invite students, professionals of music and the performing arts together with researchers in humanities and teachers to take part in the Music Village workshops, collaborative events, lectures and residencies during the summer. In addition like every other year, Music Village is open to all friends and art lovers who desire to experience the artistic coexistence and osmosis during these days in Aghios Lavrentios.

Until then, you are invited to watch two short films by Nefeli Papaioannou (Artree - Music Village production) with excerpts from all of the workshops and performances that took place last summer (2021):

Period A (duration: 16’)

Period B (duration 22’)

Also, you can enjoy a photo collection by Nikolas Chryssos (488 photos) who captured every special moment at the previous Music Village:
