Every year we celebrate the program’s kick-off in Germany in early autumn with an Opening Event in Berlin to welcome our new Fellows, introduce them to their sociocultural Hosts and spread the word about 30 inspiring project proposals around the cultural management community in Germany.

In early summer in Greece it’s time to finally present the results of all the great work that has been done and present the 15 implemented projects to the Greek community with a big multi-day Fellowship Celebration bringing together cultural changemakers from all over Greece.
