Are you ready for interventions in the city?


The action “INTERVENTIONS IN THE CITY” invites residents, professionals, legal entities and informal citizen groups to realize their own initiatives, based on collaborative processes and aiming at enhancing the quality of life in the city’s neighbourhoods.

The action supports the implementation of mild and small-scale interventions in all city district councils of the municipality of Athens that reflect the actual needs of the residents and promote collaboration and co-creation in the public space. The approved proposals received a grant of €6.000 or €12.000 for their implementation.

During 2018, two open calls were announced in the following strands:

01 – NEIGHBORHOOD 

02 – STREET 

03 – BUILDING 

04  – SERAFIO – PUBLIC BUILDING & DIGITAL ART 

Specialised curators per sector supported the whole process and ran workshops, assisting the participants in developing and growing their proposals.

In due time, the interventions of the second round will be annouched, while the first 13 interventions are already in the making. The -under development- inverventions are outlined below:
