ΚΟΙΝΩΝΩ is a multidimensional cultural organization located in Tinos since 2016, organizing site-specific art exhibitions, open workshops, music and theatre performances, research projects, interactive tours in the natural environment of the island as well as in specific buildings of historical or architectural significance. Kinono's objective is to build connections among the participants from various fields of science, art, culture -by means of residency programs- and the local land itself and to encourage, through this versatile involvement, the creation of original artistic productions, research and educational activities. The word “ΚΟΙΝΩΝΩ” in greek holds many meanings. These meanings include: to socialize, communicate,commune. One of its meanings holds great religious significance: The Eucharist (/ˈjuːkərɪst/; also called Holy Communion or the Lord's Supper, among other names) is a Christian rite. The term Communion is derived from Latin communio ("sharing in common.
With Tinos as a point of reference, and the Garden of Sykia, the Κοινωνώ headquarters, the participants interact with each other by communicating their individual work, create communities of synergy and cooperation and simultaneously cultivate the very conditions for interaction with the visitors-spectators and the inhabitants. In that way, they become interconnected, configuring KINONO, setting the basis for the establishment of a platform capable of developing creative and educational relations, with a differential perception on utilising the local cultural heritage.
