Restarting Life. Shedia art upcycle project

Greece flag

'Shedia art' is a social and environmental project that aims to create education and training as well as employment opportunities for people who are homeless and/or live well below the poverty line, experiencing social exclusion at its most extreme, while actively encouraging their full social (re)inclusion. Unused copies of the 'Shedia' street paper are not dispatched to a recycling company; instead, they are stored to be upcycled - reused, redesigned and transformed into new, usable products of high quality and aesthetic value.
