Being solitary is being alone well: being alone luxuriously immersed in doings of your own choice, aware of the fullness of your won presence rather than of the absence of others. Because solitude is an achievement.

~Alice Koller

It has been manic, exciting and a ridiculous amount of hard work for the Kalopsia team during the last few months. 

As you all might know, our main purpose is to support the work of 
local and international Contemporary Textiles Creators and build a strong platform for this field.

As those of you who came to the exhibition could see, this idea takes on so many different ways of communicating visual ideas. We aim to support those people who slip between the normal labels of contemporary art practice, by making opportunities to share work.

And we at Kalopsia Collective do this all voluntarily!!

We have made a #kickstarter video to help raise funds. If you could share, or tell people, we would be eternally grateful.
