Today on the 19th of June, 2015 we are occupying Green Park cafe in the Pedion tou Areos, one the the two central parks of Athens. Almost 4 years after the occupation of the Empros theatre in 2011 we are activating with our own means a space deserted and left empty for years by the Greek state and propose a 10 day program of cultural and political intervention in the here and now of Athens. More here

After a year and a half of self-organised activities, Green Park continues precariously to explore the possibility of an intervention in the changing landscape of Athens. After a period of reflection we experiment with a new model for the space. As part of that model we have an open meeting for proposals and actions every second Sunday of each month for a full programme to run from March to September 2017.

Parallel to artistic/social program of Green Park, the space is also offered to communities and groups of the neighbourhood for social activities.
