Echodrama Skiathos


Skiathos Cultural Center

From 2007 to 2011, Echodrama developed an extensive proposal for a new cultural center on the Greek island of Skiathos for a Ministry of Development grant in the amount of 16 million euros. With Sevi and Yannis' background in architecture and in city planning, they set to work on an ambitious facility which was to include a large amphitheater, a multi-use performance/exhibition space, retail space for up to sixteen stores, and housing which would be used for visiting artists and companies. As the proposal neared completion, the Greek crisis spiraled and the Ministry withdrew all funds and cancelled the project. They are hoping that, as conditions improve, the Ministry will again begin funding larger cultural projects.
