Active presence in the cultural upgrading of Greece

Cultural Actions

PIOP organizes cultural actions of high standard, such as archaeological, visual arts, photograph exhibitions and others, in the Multi-Purpose Halls of the Museum Network. The actions are in harmony with the character of each museum and the local history of each region. The Foundation often collaborates with local agencies to realize these actions as well as offering the use of the Halls to house events under these agencies’ initiative.

Throughout 2017, the Foundation continued the operation of its Museums Network, hosting 182 entertainment and education activities and 532 regular educational programs for children, 14 exhibitions, 166 other cultural events and 133 collaborations with third parties.

Academic events

PIOP organizes a multitude of academic events both at its headquarters in Athens and at its Network museums. These events focus on recording and promoting industrial heritage and in-depth study of the techno-economic aspects of modern Greek society. The organization of these events is realized in collaboration with universities, scientific organizations and/or local agencies.
