Romantso: Creative Hub & Cultural Center


Romantso, characterized by the public and important institutions as an innovative venue that during the last ten years continuously forms the artistic life of Athens, welcomed the young participants of the Agora Erasmus + Program (2019). They were informed about this successful creative enterprise with ongoing positive social impact and as an outstanding example of urban space reutilizing. The former printing plant of the infamous “Romantso” magazine is situated in the historical center of Athens and functions both as an incubator for start-up companies within the creative industry and as a cultural center, organizing and hosting a variety of music performances, art exhibitions, theatre, seminars, workshops, presentations and lectures accessible to the wider public. Its purpose is to reactivate an abandoned part of the historical center of the city and turn it into a breathing community consisting of young creatives, ready to make their first steps towards a professional beginning.
