Digital Games for Adults
Online activity for people aged 65+
Following its successful collaboration with Seveneleven and with the support of the TIMA Charitable Foundation, the Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundation continues for yet another year its original “Digital games for adults”, a series of online guided tours of the B&E Goulandris Foundation’s Collection, specially designed for adults over the age of 65.
Using selected works from the B&E Goulandris Foundation Collection as a starting point, and based on the “thallo” method, participants get acquainted with the world of art, through a process reminiscent of a game. The activity aims at reinforcing creativity and self-confidence, transforming introversion into expression and encouraging the elderly to use digital tools.
The “Digital games for adults”, which take place via Zoom, enable people over the age of 65 over all over Greece to get to know the Foundation’s Collection through this original game, as technology creates new possibilities for those who are not able to travel to Athens and visit the Collection.
The first guided tour series will take place on October 21 and 28 as well as November 4 and will be repeated on November 11, 18 and 25 as well as December 2, 9 and 16.
Every series will feature three different sections: “Common Points” (21/10, 11/11, 2/12), “Defining the Body” (28/10, 18/11, 9/12) and “Art Movements” (4/11, 25/11, 16/12).
Following the completion of each series, participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

The first section focuses on Paris and explores the relationship that ten different artists had with the City of Light, looking at selected works that are part of the Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundation’s Collection.
Defining the body
Thursday October 28, November 18, December 9 │19:00
Throughout history, artists have attempted to depict the human form through art, using different colours, materials and techniques. In this section, we look at the course of the human form. How would we depict a body today? Would we compose or deconstruct it?
Thursday November 4, November 25, December 16 │19:00
What does an impressionist paint? How many cubes does Cubism need? What do we have to abstract in Abstraction? How Pop can art become? In the third and final section of the series, we look at selected modern and contemporary artworks and discuss 19th and 20th century art movements, exploring their impact today.
The “Digital games for adults” have been designed and are implemented by seveneleven (Notis Paraskevopoulos and Konstantina Maltezou), based on their long experience in developing activities for people over the age of 65.
An initiative of the Basil & Eliza Goulandris Foundation, implemented by Seveneleven with the support of TIMA Charitable Foundation.
