Are you ready for interventions in the city?


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

The initiative supports the implementation of mild and small-scale interventions in all city district councils of the municipality of Athens, which reflect the actual needs of the residents and promote collaboration and co-creation in public spaces. 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 strand supported the whole process and ran workshops, assisting the participants in developing their proposals.
