Insights into START

In brief

About the project

START - Create Cultural Change is a capacity building and fellowship program for aspiring cultural managers in Greece. The program supports creative minds to kick-start cultural initiatives that generate a positive social impact on their local communities. By facilitating growth and exchange in the sociocultural sector, START aims to create new perspectives for young professionals in Greece and foster social cohesion in Europe. Each year, the program has three consecutive phases in Germany and Greece, enabling START Fellows to develop an innovative project idea into a cultural initiative and acquire the entrepreneurial skills to scale it up to become a sustainable creative venture.
