Welcome to The ISTA Chronicles

by Dinos Aristidou, Curator

The ISTA chronicles are a living archive of memories, experiences and reflections that tell the story of ISTA’s past and present.

The collection is made up of audio or written pieces contributed by members of the ISTA family who are located all over the world.

There is one chronicle for every year of ISTA’s life and every year a new piece will be added to the archive.

The archive does not follow a chronological pattern though it does take the visitor through some of the major events of and key aspects of ISTA’s story.

There are different ways you can choose to experience the archive:

Random order – curate your own experience by selecting chronicles at random

In sequence – follow the order in which they appear to get an overview of ISTA, the people and the experience

By category – choose any of the following categories and experience ISTA through these areas:
ORIGINS: From ‘The chronicle of ISTA’s origins: ISTA’s cosmic eggs’ to ‘The chronicle of the ISTA family’
THE ORGANISATION: From ‘The chronicle of a guardian of ISTA’ to ‘The chronicle of a house in France’
ISTA EVENTS: From ‘The chronicle of festival magic’ to ‘The chronicle of Europe through the back door’
ISTA FAMILY: From ‘The chronicle of a teacher’s journey: from Cape Cod to Terezin’ to ‘The chronicle of inspiration’

Whichever route you choose to take through the archive, we hope you enjoy the experience and discover new things about this unique organisation and its history.
