WHO WE ARE

 

The International Association of Photography and Art of Antiparos (IAPAA) was created in 2016 to promote the visual arts on the small Greek island of Antiparos. One of the main functions of the association is to organize the annual Antiparos International Photo Festival, which is now in its eighth year.

The International Association of Photography and Art of Antiparos is a not-for-profit organization staffed by volunteers. It depends entirely on donations.

Over the years, IAPAA has gradually expanded its activities to include many other forms of the visual arts, in fact the Photo Festival itself also regularly features music and even live action art. Through the "Anti" Art Gallery in Antiparos - now home to IAPAA - the organization hosts a full programme of art exhibitions from late spring to early autumn. These range from sculpture and ceramics to painting and, of course, photography.

 

And, in person, this is who we are:
