Patras Art Festival - PAF, a multidisciplinary festival of arts, was first founded in 2021, under the artistic director Eirini Apostolatou. The aim is to create a bridge that will unite the artistic influences of Greece and abroad with those of Patras in the field of performing and visual arts. PAF consists of dance, visual and performing arts, focusing on research, education, artistic action and production as guiding axes. We embrace different artists and art forms and give the opportunity to push their boundaries of experimentation.
The festival's program covers contemporary dance and circus performances, exhibitions, video dance, street art, visual art, music and educational workshops.
PAF is being organised by Art Evolution & Thespis Technes since 2021. In past two editions, the festival has been supported by the Ministry of Culture and Sports, Western Region of Greece and received support by national and regional sponsors.
