The Platforms Project Net was held for the first time last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which led the Platforms Project to come up with a new way of viewing. The Platforms Project ΝΕΤ 2020 was internationally the second fair to have taken place online, and the first one in Greece. It was visited by viewers from over 80 countries, with more than 264,000 hits over the period of the digital exhibition. This year, the Platforms Project Net hosts more platforms and artists than ever before, and if the pandemic conditions and the safety of artists and visitors allow it, the physical presentation of Platforms Project 2020-21 will be held from Thursday 21 to Sunday 24 October 2021 at the “Nikos Kessanlis” exhibition hall of the Athens School of Fine Arts.

Platforms Project aims to serve as a hub of creation, a register of the avant-garde trends in art and a forum for promoting interaction among platforms.

This year’s KIDS LAB educational program is designed for 4-16-year-olds. Developed by the Dutch platform EX-MÊKH and the artist and art educator Ellen Rodenberg, the program invites children to set up their own mini space ( a small stand/cube) with paper, pencils and colors during the Platforms Project NET, for which they can draw inspiration from the exhibition.

In addition, the program designed by the Greek platform Lab for Arts aims to introduce children to the visual arts and help them find inspiration in the works of major artists.
