For the duration of the Winter Games, a unique event is offered to the athletes in the Olympic Village, led by artists who participated as athletes in former editions of the Games. The workshop will foster interaction among Olympians in competition and Olympian artists, who will work together to create a series of artworks to be displayed in different areas of the Village. The activity will enhance and diversify the athletes’ experience inside the Village by adding an artistic dimension. It will be a fun opportunity for athletes to engage in dialogue and to rediscover the Olympic values through their own creativity.
