NewSchool.Athens has been founded as a conduit for international cooperation in photography education for the South East Mediterranean region. The current economic environment calls for the creation of peer-to-peer links that are separate to formal government procedures that have failed to create a modern educational system in the region. An educational system is intertwined with a local and global society that is changing in a rapid pace is required to help people keep abreast of the latest developments in their chosen professions. A cross border grass root movement between professionals such as the one that NewSchool.Athens is supporting will create the necessary links between what are now separate professional and artistic networks.
