The EFFE (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe) honored Santorini Arts Factory’s program concludes its August leg with a jazz performance, and moves into its September leg for the theatrical performance to round out the 2017 events.

The festival take place in Santorini, hosting theater, dance, and musical performances, seminars, art exhibitions and other acts.

The festival aims to go beyond established practices in tourism, focusing on culture, education and alternative tourism through initiatives and cultural programs geared towards promoting Greek islands, Santorini’s ancient and modern history, as well as its material and cultural products on offer for visitors from around the world.

In addition to the Festival itself, the “D. Nomikos” Industrial Tomato Museum provides guests a historical overview of Santorini and its traditions, centered on the island’s tomato production and its process at the old factory’s site, where the original machines are housed since 1945. The site includes a sale shop featuring selected samples of Greek design, small works of art, jewelry, books, music, and products by local producers.

On Thursday, August 24, at 9:30 pm, the Vasilis Rakopoulos Quintet presents Aegean Jazz, an experimental musical venture internationally known as intuitive music. Then, on September 20-22, at 6 pm, audiences will have the opportunity to catch the theatrical performance of “Ion”, directed by Ioli Andreadis.
