The Mystery 137 Moving towards professional solidarity is a five-day event at the Paleo Olive Oil Works of Eleusis, specially designed for the place where the concepts of collective consciousness and action flourished during the period of development of the labor movement. Through workshops and meetings with the local collectives of the city, Mystery 137 aims to bring to the present the concept of professional solidarity, using culture as a means of social change.

From the 1950s to the present, the narrative and approach to social change has changed. The dynamic of collective action has been strengthened and the catalytic role of networks in the socio-cultural Greek ecosystem has been strengthened. With the use of modern methods of cooperation and dialogue and with the use of technology, distances have tended to be erased in recent years and the development time of collective action is increasingly accelerated.

How can the future of collective initiatives of cultural professionals active in social and cultural innovation be shaped? What are the forms, practices and mindsets that enable young professionals to interconnect, transact, inspire each other and make their work more sustainable and effective?

The aim of this meeting is to broaden the exploration horizons of the participants through mutual exchange and the transition to new, more participatory, collective and relevant forms of professional coalitions related to the local community of Eleusis.
