This modern, 900-square-metre multi-purpose venue was opened by 2023 Eleusis European Capital of Culture to host events of various kinds, and with various requirements: dance and theatre performances, visual arts events, screenings, workshops, and numerous other activities. Together with the Old Oil Mill Factory, the Leonidas Kanellopoulos Exhibition Centre, and the Old Canteen, the X – Bowling Art Center forms part of a multi-purpose network of cultural venues set along the city waterfront. The Municipality of Elefsina decided to take action, leasing and renovating this private property to overcome a lack of cultural infrastructure of this size, and on account of the feasibility of its delivery within the set time constraints.
