Within the space of just four months, students in Greece will take a dive deep into the world of contemporary art and create contemporary music inspired by a work of art.
Initiated by the Center Pompidou and IRCAM, this artistic educational project Ateliers de la creation (Studios of Creation) has a simple but demanding ambition: to offer students of professional lycées, far from the world of art and its institutions, a dive at the heart of the most contemporary creation.

In association with Athens' National Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki’s State Museum of Contemporary Art, museum educators, artists, musicians and composers, the Onassis Stegi-Athens invites the students to join this interdisciplinary programme in order to gain hands-on experience of the visual and audio arts and create something of their own along with the group.
After museum visits and talks with the artists and the educational curators, the students got inspired by a work of contemporary art and created their own musical compositions using self-made musical instruments and sound editing software.
