When artists from all over the world come together to share a single workspace for a week, elusive inspiration naturally starts to percolate. On 13 October 2018, nine talented professional artists will travel from different countries to the picturesque mountain village of Cómpeta, for the 4th International Art Symposium LUZ. They come from Poland, Italy, Denmark, The Netherlands, Japan, Cyprus and Albanie.
