Face Forward ... into my home is an interactive program that focuses on the stories of people who have been forced to leave their homeland and try to rebuild their lives in Greece. It resulted from a complex program proposed by the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST) and was implemented with the cooperation of the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees). The process includes experiential narrative workshops, in which the participating refugees, with the launch of works of the Museum's collection, narrate their personal stories, photograph participants and eventually exhibition of photographic portraits, framed by recorded personal stories. Face Forward ... into my home involves refugees and asylum seekers supported by the ESTIA (Emergency Housing and Integration Support) program and implemented by UNHCR, funded by the Department of Civil Protection and Humanitarian Affairs Commission assistance (ECHO).

A walk with paintings

In collaboration with the Foundation for Research Technology and Art History, Mr. Deniz-Chloe Alevizou, the art collection collections of the Municipality are photographed, digitized, documented and classified. Thus, the treasure hitherto scattered in services, or hidden in warehouses, will be digitally displayed until he finds his place at the Kothri-Liopiraki Mansion, which was granted by the Ministry of Culture to the Municipality, to house the City Gallery Heraklion.
An important part of this collection are the works of Evangelos Markogiannakis (1874-1856), the most representative painter of the period, from the Lassithi plateau, who lived in Heraklion. Works that are largely due to the noble donation of Anemogianni and depict atmospheric landscapes of the city and the countryside, scenes of everyday life or typical forms, especially during the Ottoman domination. With the help of the technology and knowledge of Mrs. Alevizo, we will make a beautiful walk at that time, through selected works by Markogiannakis. In addition, we will see an important sample of the remarkable work that is being prepared for the Art Gallery of the Municipality of Heraklion.
