All Athens is a stage

June 18 – July 31, 2022

This summer, the Municipality of Athens brings culture to all, in every neighbourhood

43 days, 70+ events, 17 neighbourhoods in all City Districts 

Free admission to all

This summer, Athens will be transformed into one big stage to host art and culture, with free concerts, tributes, theatre and Music Performances for all,  in squares, open spaces, parks and theatres of the city.

The Municipality of Athens invited artists to submit their proposals for “All Athens is a Stage*” project curated by the City of Athens Cultural, Sports and Youth Organization (OPANDA). From June 18 to July 31, the project aspires to bring together audiences and artists in 17 neighbourhoods of Athens in all City Districts with more than seventy (70) events.

The Mayor of Athens, Kostas Bakoyannis, inaugurating the project, said: “Now, we need Culture more than ever. We need to go out, be entertained, and have fun in the parks, theatres and squares of our neighbourhoods with our family, friends and neighbours. And this is exactly what we are trying to do with our new project, “All Athens is a Stage”, supporting, as we did during the pandemic, artists and cultural workers because we deserve to enjoy wonderful Athenian cultural summers!”

The Open Theatres of Kolonos and Grava, the Pangrati and Probonas Parks, Lambrakis Hill, Avdi, Koumoundourou, Victoria, AgiosEleftheriosAcharnon, Plyta and Agia Marina squares, the Gardens of the Arts Centre at ParkoEleftherias and the Municipal Library of Athens in Larissa Station, the Koninstra and Ellinoroson Sports Facilities and the FokionosNegri pedestrian street will host “All Athens is a Stage”. With this project, the City of Athens turns every Municipal District into a cultural venue and every neighbourhood into an art lab, offering residents of each area daily access to selected cultural events.

The Musical Ensembles of the Municipality of Athens are part of 

this cultural journey, collaborating with excellent artists, promising exceptional evenings full of melodies.

And now, for the first time, the Municipality of Athens brings culture to your mobile phones with one click! All the current and future events of the City of Athens, cultural news, museums, and venues are quickly and efficiently reached through the City of Athens official portal and an app that informs us about what’s going on in the city and our neighbourhood! “Culture Is Athens” is now free on IOS or Android, making our cultural lives easy and fun!

*The project “All Athens is a Stage” is part of Culture is Athens, the three-year umbrella project announced by the Municipality and its institutions, which aims at upgrading, promoting and integrating the cultural fabric of Athens and practically supporting artists and cultural workers.
