Please note: this article is in Greek. New Cultural Geographies in twenty first century Athens: the old towns’ center as stage and borderline: for many decades the new formed Hellenic state needed to refer to its ancient past in order to accept any form of current cultural activity. Since 1990 Athens’ historical centre areas (Psiri, Gazi, Keramikos-Metaxourigio and Votanicos) have undergone a vast change, first because of the geographic shift of the artistic activities towards this area and, secondly, because of the “international friendly” attitudes. Thus, international festivals, biennials and exhibitions became a common ground. In down town centre, first came the galleries, the multicultural spaces, the private museums, the alternative theatre and music stages and the modern dance groups, followed, right after, by the artists’, graphic designers’ and fashion studios, along with the leisure reference points. All together they created a new life style. The characteristics of this phenomenon, the new social behaviours, the financial factors and the Media influence formed new identities and resulted in remarkably higher participation percentages in Culture.
