Baytna Hub June Community Day

Community and Healing

During our Community Day events, we invite members of the Kypseli neighbourhood to join us in art activities designed for school aged children. One of Baytna Hub’s values is connection through community and art. In the past, we have held 3 such days, opening our doors at our kindergarten space in the Kypseli Municipal Market. This month, we will hold our event outside in the common area of the market, off the entrance of Fokionos Negri. 

In celebration of Refugee Week Greece, Baytna Hub will include the theme of healing to our Community Day. Healing comes in many different forms, and at Baytna we strive to foster an environment where healing can happen through art and connection between parents and their children. The activities listed below are aimed to promote creativity, connection, hope and happy memories for everyone who wants to join. 

The event is kindly supported by ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΗ ΛΕΓΚΡΑΝ ΑΕΒΕ

Με αφορμή την Παγκόσμια Ημέρα Προσφύγων που τιμάται κάθε χρόνο στις 20 Ιουνίου, η ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΗ ΛΕΓΚΡΑΝ ΑΕΒΕ σε συνεργασία με την Ύπατη Αρμοστεία του ΟΗΕ για τους Πρόσφυγες (UNHCR) στήριξε την καλοκαιρινή δράση που οργανώνει η Συντονίστρια Εκπαίδευσης Προσφύγων της δομής του Σχιστού «Εκδρομή 15 προσφυγόπουλων στη Σίφνο, 13-20 Ιουνίου 2022».

Για το Refugee Week Greece, η ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΗ ΛΕΓΚΡΑΝ ΑΕΒΕ στήριζει την “Ημέρα για την Κοινότητα” σε συνεργασία με το Πρόγραμμα Βaytna Hub, προσφέροντας τα υλικά για τις δημιουργικές δράσεις των παιδιών και συμμετέχοντας στις δράσεις της ημέρας.

Activities for the day:

Wishing Tree

Using twine and paper, participants will write their wishes and decorate them. They have the option of having them kept secret if they wish. We will attach the wishes to one of the trees outside Kypseli Market, on the pedestrian street, Fokionos Negri. 

Superhero Masks + Photobooth 

Families will be invited to create masks out of paper materials, paints and other craft materials. We will have a background where they can pose together and receive an instant picture as a memory. 

Friends of the Neighbourhood Mural 

Using a large roll of craft paper, children and parents will outline each other’s bodies and paint and colour themselves and each other using paints. This mural will be displayed for the neighbourhood after the event
