Bazaar of Ideas: Shifting Perspectives
The START program is coming to a conclusion with the upcoming online Fellowship Celebration. Initially planned to take place in Thessaloniki, this year’s event has been moved online due to covid-19 related restrictions. At the fifth and ultimate Fellowship Celebration of the program, we take a different look at all the sociocultural practices developed this year and bring different voices together. You will be introduced to this year’s START fellows and their respective work, as well as the overall contribution of the program to the sociocultural sector in Greece.
The multi-day event will kick off with an online celebration on September 9, starting at 18.00 hrs EEST. On September 10, the program continues from 17.30 till 20.00 hrs EEST with the presentation of the Scaling Award winners and the Premiere of the Unlearning Talks series.
The event will take place ONLINE for free. Register through this link!
We invite all those who want to shift their perspective to join us and actively participate in initiatives that change our societies.
