MAM 2018 under the theme Capturing Paros will begin its second edition of a music festival combining masterclasses and workshops by day, concerts and performances by night.
The island of Paros, considered one of the most beautiful island in Greece, will host all the events. A mix of traditional Cycladic expression and cosmopolitan sophistication will make for an unforgettable summer experience.
Our aim is to promote artistic practice in a place where aesthetics meets high quality vacation: a spot where you can enjoy easy living.
The Greek isles have drawn in for centuries numerous artists seeking cathartic wellness, beneficial for creative learning. Our intention is to create, while using the community of Paros as a setting, one week of gratification where fun meets creative depth.
