We’re closing this year’s posts with a really nice initiative by ELC Productions that we joyfully took part in some time ago. Documentaries, original songs, street art, videos, and podcasts; all created to enhance the ongoing project Genia 17 that is focusing on the UN Sustainable Development Goals agenda.
Our Foundation sponsored Ten Million Hands to become ambassadors of the SDG 12 - Sustainable Consumption & Production. Here’s a teaser showing the creation of the respective mural, and a link with the relevant video, podcast, interview and tribute.
Cheers, see you next year!
Five years ago, the emblematic building of the Municipal Market in Kypseli re-opened its doors, under the management of the Impact Hub Athens. The space was transformed into a meeting and reference point for the Athenian public, focusing on culture, education, social innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as the strengthening of the local economy.
Now we bid farewell to the Kypseli Municipal Market and for that, Impact Hub Athens has prepared a memorable event for us; it starts with an interesting open discussion around the topic of the reuse of buildings (public and non-public) in terms that enhance the local economy and the life quality of the residents of an area. Later on, live performances and a party will follow.

The Community Program “Everyone Together at the Museum” of the Museum of Cycladic Art came to its end for this year and we’re so happy to see how beneficial and fun it was for the little artists!
The Program provided children of various nationalities and social/cultural backgrounds with the platform to exercise their fundamental right to self-expression, to practice and communicate through art, and to face each other without feeling any sign of discrimination.
It included educational workshops at the premises of the Museum with the participation of children from Polyphonica and the Network for Children's Rights, and outside the Museum for children that study in cross-cultural elementary schools.

We’re very happy to announce our collaboration with InCommOn and the funding of their project "Close the Food Cycle".
The project seeks to co-create with the Municipality of Papagou-Holargos the appropriate tools for the effective management of food residues and it aspires to achieve the gradual behavioral change of all involved parties (Municipality, citizens, local businesses) towards the food waste and the formation of a new recycling habit through the brown bins.
The long-term goal is for no food waste to end up in the landfill again and for the "Close the Food Cycle" pilot to be successfully replicated and implemented in other food waste streams and -most importantly- in other Municipalities, consolidating the values that are cultivated in more and more citizens.
Today it's the World Breast Cancer Day and what a better way to show our respect and admiration to the women who have battled against breast cancer than this:
Eyes of Light invites us to the closing event of its art exhibition "The Thread of Healing". The exhibition is the result of the works of women with breast cancer experience, created through participatory workshops, under the guidance of the visual artist, textile artist and breast cancer survivor, Gregoria Vryttia.
We will be present at this celebration of collectivity, creativity and solidarity!
Tues, 25 October 2022 at TAF - The Art Foundation. Here're the details of the event.
