Translator for Exchange Program

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

During the last week of July, Tatiana Argüello worked as a translator with two Chilean artists that visited Passion Works Studio in Athens.This was a cultural exchange between two programs aimed to use art creation as a medium of expression for artists with developmental disabilities. According to Tatiana this was a wonderful personal experience since she met very creative people who enjoy making  and value art works.
