The Attiko School

It was 2012 when the city of Eleusis first welcomed the idea of ​​creating a school dedicated to the teaching and practice of ancient Greek drama. From that point on to the present day, the Attiko School has kept its finger on the pulse of the city, teaching, learning and growing as an institution.

Over the course of this decade, the programme has assembled valued friends and collaborators, supporters, believers and devotees, collaborating with major universities and institutions in Greece and abroad, contributing to the creation of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports’ International Network of Ancient Drama, and carving out its own path in the cultural life of the city. The summer school’s cultural contribution has also been cemented by its establishment as a legacy programme within the framework of 2023 Eleusis European Capital of Culture.

It is with the same dedication and drive that we continue to provide the city and its inhabitants with a school open to all, a place for learning, unity and creative expression, a school worthy of the city that was, is and will remain a cultural capital for both Europe and the wider world.

The Attiko School of Ancient Greek Drama is implemented with the support of 2023 Eleusis European Capital of Culture and the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports’ International Network of Ancient Drama.

Labor
The thematic axis of the artistic programme titled Labor explores the past and the present of work, the common European challenges of precariousness and the model of a contemporary sustainable economy, focusing on the pioneering linking of art with fields such as industry, science, technology and social innovation. Thus, it addresses another important feature of European cultural heritage, industry, which has been the basis of Europe’s development in the last few centuries. The thematic axis creates synergies between artists and businesses in various sectors as well as between artists and scientists, through three themes/notions: “The Future Starts Here”, “Culture My Profession/Culture My Hobby”, “Capacity Building and Applied Innovation Centre”.
