What is Metis?
Metis is a program where local artists build bridges between development and the arts. Their artistic expression is inspired by the real-life situations of the places where they live and work, by the people who live there, and by the issues that affect their communities. Through the art they produce, they bear witness to what they experience, raise questions, give meaning, encourage exchanges, and help build new perspectives in common.
In ancient Greek mythology, Metis was the mother of wisdom and deep thought.
