The KAPANI PROJECT is a fresh and multidimensional cultural action in the city of Thessaloniki, Greece. Kapani, the city's oldest market was in its heyday the point of reference for trading life in Thessaloniki. As a creative reaction to the gradual demise of the market, the project holds Kapani out again as a place of interaction where tradition meets creativity, society and professional mobility. Amongst the many fish, fruits, odours, fabrics, aromas, colours and traditions, musicians, actors and conjectural artists collaborate with Kapani's tradespeople, against the backdrop of the traditional open air stalls and the market's bustling lanes -they experiment and co-create.

The action took place in the streets of this traditional market for the second year in a row, blending new with old, with joy and respect to its history. The Kapani project calls to action (act), whilst it is a synthesis of actions itself, the resultant of all the artists who responded to its call and will fill its roads. We meet, we scatter, and meet again in its 7 streets, at the Kapani Project.
