this particular site has less extreme peaks and valleys, so that it is on a more human scale. this makes it much easier than you would expect. sometimes repetitions of small artworks are enough to make the final visual effect much larger.
see two examples:
- stone horizon
- float horizon
for audio and poetry workshops, there are specific protected sites
all projects are not necessarily created jointly, but in practice, joint
work is usually based on a shared idea rather than a shared language. the
half-hour trip from paleochora to the site gives you an opportunity to talk
with 3 or 4 people in the same language, and at the site, you can exchange

at this stage it may well be more difficult to find charter flights if
you want to go home before the end of august. most people with children have
to be home in time for the first day of the new school year (1 september),
so these flights are filling up. however, if you stay until the beginning of
september you can find some good prices. many of our participants stay for a
fortnight and spend the last 7 days exploring crete.
in aug it is necessary to make reservations in advance.
but after 20 aug it is easier: you will find hotels where you can book a room straight away all over crete,
ranging from 1-star hotels (category C) to category A or even luxury category.
and above all, you will find 'rooms to let' everywhere.
you can plan your trip as you go, according to how you feel at the time.

there are no funding emanating from the cooperating associations, as these encounters have to be considered as a meeting of free people,

it's more a game . . . to open the mind.
of course participants are free to find funding in their own community.
the participants of each session may decide together to publish catalogues or to organize exhibitions on one or different places in europe (e.g. travelling exhibitions)

taxi to paleochora costs about 85 euro for 4 passengers: travel time: 1
hour). levka ori.org can post participants' arrival times on our latest "levka ori
you can take the bus from the chania busstation in the centre of the city
(5,80 euro p.p. / travel time about 90 minutes). you have to take a shared
taxi to the busstation: 15 min)
on the airport: avis, herz, and many others
from home you can make reservation with crete holidays : they come and find you
on the airport chania or iraklion (e.g. hyundai accent: 258 - 324 euro a week 5 adults)
we think that would tie people down too much. everyone has his own ideas
about what accommodation he wants, and all types of accommodation are very
easy to find without prior reservation during this period. paleochora is a
small village with plenty of hotels and rooms to let available.
