About us and our project
The Festival is a meeting point for collectives and struggles to connect and share knowledge.
Round 200 alternative groups from all over Greece participate and hundreds of volunteers help us organise the festival. Participants vary from social clinics and solidarity pharmacies to time banks, social kitchens, traditional seed banks, social centres, eco-communities, cooperatives or exchange networks, including initiatives like the worker’s self-managed factory of Vio.Me. or the Kinisi 136 water movement, amongst others.
We are members of various Greek initiatives and the festival is a self-organised and self-managed process. We are not part of political parties, NGOs or any recognised organization and we are not funded. Our political views focus on direct participatory democracy.
For the third edition of our festival, we want to reach out to the rest of Europe to learn from each other and build links. We are inviting different European groups related to our struggles and here is where your contribution is of vital importance!
