LAVREOTIKI is a not-for-profit company that is based in the SE region at the tip of Attica, Greece named Lavreotiki.  The words lavra-lavri, which mean underground passage or mine gallery are the origins of the area's name, and hence the NPO’s name.  For the reason that the region has a rich mineral substratum, mining was a central activity, already before antiquity.  The archeological and of recent times findings are abundant forming a multilayered landscape that is considered to be a monument.

Stepping lightly into the land’s sites to trace the elements that operate on its side lines, “the spirit or thought that passed there before” (Solnit, 2014). 

The mission of the NPO Lavreotiki is to create a supporting mechanism for professionals of the creative and cultural industries, and promote contemporary art practices as much as cultural heritage within-and-beyond Lavreotiki. To achieve these, we wish to create valuable collaborations and foster a spirit of support.
