Open Agora: Διήμερο bazaar και παράλληλες δράσεις - Εικόνα
01 November 2023

Aiming to activate public space as a shared meeting place of accessibility and creativity, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is inviting nonprofit, independent, voluntary and activist organizations to participate in a two-day open agora that will take place on December 2th and 3rd at the SNFCC Lighthouse.

In the context of this event, the word “Agora” has a twofold meaning: a platform for acquaintance and discussion between the SNFCC’s public and various social action groups, as well as a place for hosting an open market in which organizations will be able to sell their products to support their cause.

The initiative aims to raise awareness among the SNFCC’s public on issues that concern the everyday life of us all and are associated with the scope of activities of participating groups, as well as to support the participating organizations by providing them with a platform of extroversion.

The open agora is inaugurated in December, on the occasion of the International Day of Disabled Persons (Dec. 3), and will be staged on SNFCC premises at regular intervals, each time dedicating its content to a different theme. In this way, more and more groups of citizens and organizations will be given the opportunity to participate and disseminate their values and mission.

The 1st Open Agora at the SNFCC is dedicated to the theme Health, Mental Health, and Disability. If you belong in a group providing support in an associated field, we would like to get to know you!

You may submit your application for participation until Nov. 13, 2023.
