Asfa Photo Courses 'makes home' for a week the Athens School of Fine Arts annex in Tsepelovo in Zagorohoria villages in Epirus, Greece with “Postcards from home” 1st edition summer workshop.

In “Postcards from home” summer workshop participants are invited to explore the concept of home in relation to their personal choices: the comeback to the family home, to the home village, migration, the familiar and the unfamiliar place, nature as home and more.

The concept of home provides a framework for a wide variety of photographic approaches.

Postcards from home is an art community project that brings people together to reflect and create on the idea of HOME.

Who is it for

The workshop is aimed at photographers who wish to combine the creative process with their stay in Tsepelovo and whatever that involves: walking in nature, getting acquainted with the place and its inhabitants, participating in the 3-day traditional authentic ‘panigiri’ (feast).


Meetings with the workshop leaders will start at 12 pm and will last till 17.00 pm so that participants have enough time on the creative process.

In our meetings we will discuss issues that arise both from the theoretical and technical fields. Interdisciplinary approaches are especially encouraged.

The team led by the workshop leaders Lia Nalbantidou & Photini Papahatzi will work with each participant individually and all together as well.
