Art, as a social phenomenon, adjusts through time and reflects the society itself. In the third consecutive year of action, International Thessaloniki Accordion Festival REEDBLOCKS explores creative paths out of the special temporary social conditions.
According to the guidelines for the protection of public health, based on the extroverted and street character of the instrument, along with the companion instruments we move around open spaces observing Thessaloniki’s multicultural sky and creating accordion’s constellation.
Improvised, newborn and renewed reedblocks converse with the cultural present and past of the city. Concerts, seminars, workshops, exhibitions, video presentations and new creations form the “bellow” of the 3rd REEDBLOCKS, that will breaththrough interaction during the Festival.
On September 25 to 27, 2020 we invite in Thessaloniki the old and new friends, as well as the new explorers of the accordion, in the spaces of Yedi Kule, the Museum of Byzantine Art and Horodendro for the 3rd International Thessaloniki Accordion Festival REEDBLOCKS, co-organised with the Municipal Conservatory of Thessaloniki/Cultural Center of Thessaloniki and supported by the Ministry of Culture.
