To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) delivering the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) to the Greek state and the public, the SNFCC is organizing five days full of celebratory events and activities for all audiences from February 19 to 23.

 The festivities will also include a public discussion on how the SNFCC can serve as a model public space and a prime example of a successful public-private partnership. The discussion will be held on Saturday, February 19, at 18:00 (EET) at the SNFCC Lighthouse and will feature SNF Co-President Andreas Dracopoulos and SNFCC Managing Director Elly Andriopoulou.

Papandreou, Antonis Samaras, Alexis Tsipras, and Kyriakos Mitsotakis. Former Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, who will also represent the government, has confirmed his presence, as well as former Minister Effie Achtsioglou, who will represent SYRIZA Progressive Alliance.
