Cultural Decentralization

Cultural Decentralization

Discover the richness of our cultural heritage by visiting one of the numerous events at our villages around the Heartland of Legends.

The Cultural Decentralization Program aims to promote quality cultural activities in rural communities. The program was launched in 2015 and was immediately embraced by the communities and the public. It has been enriched and expanded over the years, and today it covers a wide spectrum of activities such as arts, literature, contemporary dance, folk culture, music and theatre. The Program also hosts music and printmaking workshops in an attempt to involve young people in the process of cultural creation.
