10 years handmade and recyclable! 10 years of creation! 10 years HRTFest

“That we did with effort, now it has a title.” The main theme of the Handmade and Recycled Theater Festival or HRTFest as it is now called is the idea of ​​handmade and recyclable. Reflecting the identity and the way the team that created it, Fabrica Athens, HRTFest is the realization of a vision. An artistic vision – and not only – where artists work as a team, and take on many different roles to create their own opportunities with the materials and tools they already have.

Until now, the aim is to support independent artistic creation, to promote DIY initiatives and to cultivate an ever-expanding community of artists who share this way of thinking, perceiving and creating.

It is a fact that we are walking on difficult roads and unfavorable conditions and the field of culture has not emerged unscathed from these conditions. So the artists asked to find new ways to continue creating and communicating; the Festival inspires and supports a different way of working.

Closing 10 years, HRTFest invites you to celebrate with it and to co-create this year a unique Festival of Handmade & Recyclable Theater and Art!
