In the second festival, which took place again in Arsos village in August 2014, the local projects involved were increased. Xarkis was thus becoming established as a design-driven initiative aiming at activating, co-ordinating and amplifying local projects in order to bring about sustainable changes on a larger scale.

Xarkis at this point in time, was created with the aim of building resilience and catalysing relationships among communities to spur social sustainability. In 2014, the project was still in the beginning so it was too early to discuss the scope of transformation processes, nonetheless, it was already recognised that the Festivals were embraced by the local communities and enabled the conditions to move forward in the same direction.
