UrbanDig project and the Dutch Company New Heroes invited young artists to participate in a free sketch workshop, between 21 and 23 of April. The workshop’s aim was to introduce the methodology behind the artistic digital application "The Village Omonia".

During these days, 5 participants - the youngest from age 16- coming from different backgrounds, made the visual part of the app real!

The participants got to know more on the app, through walking around Omonia and listening to the special stories of the five “villagers”. And after 2 days of focused work, thanks to the amazing Asimina Kordatzi, Anna Lioliou, Viktor Melistas, Marina Mersiadou and Christina Mitselou, Omonia's heroes became almost tangible.

The workshop was completed on the 25th of April, by successfully testing the first draft of the application. The first users were the participants of the workshop, as well students from Panteion University.
