WHO WE ARE

Few words about
CULTURE FOR CHANGE

We are the first Greek Association to represent the voice of more than 70+ professionals

diverse academic backgrounds and multiple skills from across the country, including but not limited to cultural administrators, artists, lawyers, behavioural scientists, designers, architects, urban planners, environmentalists and other specialties, linked by shared views and practices around Social and Cultural Innovation.

We support and highlight the initiatives of our members by providing them with structures, practices, guidelines and continuing education opportunities. Our goal is to help them bridge their reality, as well as to collaborate creatively with other individuals, networks and organizations, and make their work more feasible (and magical), sustainable and effective, with the ultimate goal of strengthening the Cultural Sector and Civil Society in Greece and around the world.

We are called Culture for Change because we aim to cause change in the way we see, feel and interact through our cultural activities. Change for the people and organizations we work with. Change for our member communities. Change for us. Change for our planet. Change for Culture and Culture for Change.
