Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative

Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative is a non-profit organization that primarily aims at raising environmental awareness through a unique art program inspired by the crucial issue of waste management. It was founded in 2014 by Polyeco S.A. Vice President Athanasios Polychronopoulos as a result of his genuine belief that art is the best tool to stimulate dialogue about critical environmental issues. PCAI implements its objectives though three areas of activity: Collection, Projects, Support.

The Collection is based on special commissions mainly of moving image art. PCAI provides mid-career and emerging artists with the means and resources to create an artwork inspired by urgent environmental issues in their broader relation to current sociocultural, economic, philosophical concerns. Artists may draw inspiration from the waste management sites and facilities, the countries, the workforce and the people involved in the waste management process in a free and innovative way. They can investigate waste sources and process itineraries; they can research the external factors and taboos that affect our perception of waste.

The Projects are all the activities and events (special commissions, exhibitions, publications, educational programs and workshops) organized by PCAI around its growing commission-based Collection.

Support refers to our engagement with other initiatives and individuals that share the same vision and concerns.
