With the MedIn OTRart project, the “Routes of the Olive Tree” are offering activities to discover the world of the olive tree and the Mediterranean from another angle, one of artistic creation.
The Med Artists’ Gallery is a digital art gallery that seeks to give visibility to the work of artists, painters, sculptors, photographers, ceramists and writers inspired by the olive tree and the Mediterranean.
