The Festival that connects the Aegean landscape and nature with Audiovisual Arts, Little Islands Festival (LIF) is dedicated to all artistic communities experimenting with hybrid artistic practices at the boundaries of the performing and digital arts.
The 4th edition of Little Islands Festival took place in summer 2022 under the theme of “Communality”, and explored the notion of community and opened a dialogue on its meaning and scope. Our driving force is the Aegean Sea as an element of unity and communication that has shaped a collective life culture, moving between self-sufficiency, resilience and assertion, interaction and coexistence. The festival hosted the works of 100 artists from Greece and abroad, presented installations, screenings, music, alternative tours, workshops, talks, site-specific projects and audiovisual performances.
From 19 to 22 August 2022 each part of the island of Sikinos transformed into a field of play, discovery and creation, where the audience became from a spectator to a participant and co-creator. We experiment with public open art that interacts with the regions of the world, making events that transform into common places, creating performances, telling stories, connecting the shared memory of space with the new reality of the digital world. Seeking the unexpected, the artistic experience that stimulates the emotion and sensory bodies, the “here” and “now” co-presence of people.
