A number of organiziations presented themselves in the Platforms-section among which Fulbright Greece. The Fulbright fundingpossibilities are well known and nowadays they try to raise their budget by asking artist who were funded to make an artists edition of a work.

The editions are presented on the fair, a very nice and appropriate initiative which makes a win win situation for artists and the Fulbrightorganization.

A kids corner is also organized with the help of artists who created examples of what one can doe with a shopping bag, later lots of kids would be cutting, gluing and painting bags.
