    10day festival webpage

    The TEI of Kavala hosts an annual 10-day festival for 25+ years. This festival takes place because of an open and self-organised group of people that changes thoughout the years (Very proud to be part of it, you should check it). For it's needs I created the website that was mainly a photo gallery archive and a forum to share media created back then.
    On top of that, I was streaming the stage, during the shows through a terrible webcam. Cool but unfortunately it's not online any more. πŸ”Œ
