In its first year of operation, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center already became a major cultural producer and destination. Complemented by the events organized by the Greek National Opera and the National Library of Greece, the SNFCC’s program features music, dance, cinema, theater and performing arts.
Encouraging sports and physical exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle is a key priority for the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center.
An integral part of the SNFCC's vision is to become a learning space for all, regardless of age and educational background, offering access to education and skill-building opportunities, without financial or other barriers to entry. Starting with art, architecture, nature and technology, the SNFCC's educational programs encourage participants to discover their potential and broaden their range of interests.
As part of the SNFCC's mission to educate visitors and raise their sustainability awareness, special environmental programs have been developed for schools, as well as workshops on a wide range of topics, varying from the environment, energy and architecture to gardening for all ages.
In 2017, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center commenced its commercial operation in five different sectors: venue hiring, food and beverage service points, the SNFCC Store, parking services, and bike-rental services.
