In conjuction with the exhibition Nature Morte of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Crete, an educational programme and a workshop were realized in April 2016, entitled: 
Nature Morte: Absence, Emptiness, Marks, Memory.
The meaning of absence, of mark making, of memory and preservation of memories, and of the artistic use of emptiness.

During the programme we studied the meaning of absence, its representation, the methods we use to preserve memories, the artistic and photographic treatment of the empty space. We talked about film, light, the art of representing a still life ("vanitas"), the story-telling through images, and the abstraction, literally and metaphorically. We also talked about the abstract and succinct word through the art of photography and specifically through the work of the artists of this exhibition. 

The programme was enriched with a workshop of leaving marks and making prints on paper using leaves and ink.
