About the programme
The seven artistic projects of the programme illuminate the matter of utopia, each one on its own way, raising questions about the liaison between reality, history, our perception of what we can fight for and our faith in a future as we have imagined it. Can we really envision a future? Can we sense the war around us and deal with it? Can we change the rules of the game? Can we make our small guerrilla war in order to bring something better into life? Can we use the democratic procedures we have at our disposal to conceive and impose laws or constitution articles that really protect us? Can we leap over the dark period we are going through turning our regard to a brighter future? Can we listen to the heartbeat of our society and let it lead us to other galaxies? And if all this is but a utopia, isn’t it worth fighting for it? A deep faith in humanity springs from the artistic projects of MIRfestival 2016. A faith originating from artistic creation itself, which we need because it makes the power of humanism surface, now that we are aware that the destruction is not an abstract threat, but it lurks in whatever is happening around us, in the dark side of human beings that only needs this bit to prevail.
The seven projects of MIR2016 listen, expose, dream, invigorate unusual spaces and put spectators in an awareness orbit. Plus, they invite a rather large group of Athenian citizens to get involved in a constructive way in creating and presenting them.
MIRfestival is different this time, as every time. Vibrating as it has always been. By and for the citizens of this city and of the world. Assimilating the Athenian reality. Lighting it up for a moment.

Be a sponsor of the most exciting festival. Be a sponsor of MIRfestival!
MIRfestival is a low budget festival growing up and changing its structure, trying to face the multiple challenges of the continuously transforming art environment, of its unique programme and of audiences more and more demanding. Thus, we are searching for funding partners and supporters.
The contribution of sponsors is necessary and precious for us. Combining the strategies of promotion of your companies with one of the most avant-garde festivals in Athens, you will receive in exchange not only the benefits we offer to our sponsors, but also the satisfaction of supporting a sector which is hard to find funding and that of investing in the future of contemporary art.
ΜΙRfestival is organized by the non-profit company for the promotion of contemporary arts MIR, which is ready to offer its sponsors all the necessary prerequisites for their tax release, according to the law.
In kind sponsorships are also welcome!
