Launching the photo exhibition ‘In the eye of the beholder’ in Brussels

“In the eye of the beholder” is an exhibition of human portraits focusing on the everyday heroes involved in the EEA Grants NGO Programme for Greece entitled “We are all Citizens”.

Implemented across the country between 2014-2017, with a contribution of 7,34M Euros from Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, the programme has had a significant impact on the lives of more than 205,000 people. Roma schoolkids in the town of Drosero, Xanthi, in northern Greece, have been engaged in remedial teaching to cope with the challenges of their daily work at schools. Young migrants – unaccompanied refugee kids – have found a home, a shelter and a new family through these grants. Kids with cerebral palsy have found new ways of expression and integration through art. Flea market sellers and active citizens have merged in fruitful discussions regarding the evolution of the country’s constitution and active citizens’ rights in Varvakeios, the central flea market of the Athenian capital.

A unique amalgam of heroes, faces, personal goals and dreams, “We are all Citizens” stresses the fact that humanity, like beauty, is indeed “in the eye of the beholder”.

The exhibition “In the eye of the beholder” will be hosted at the Philanthropy House, Rue Royale 94, in Brussels, Belgium, from 21 June 2017 to 28 August 2017.
