Photo exhibition - “In the eye of the beholder”

The exhibition presents the everyday heroes involved in the 'We are all Citizens' programme in Greece. Implemented across the country between 2014-2017, with support from Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, the programme has had a significant impact on the lives of more than 200,000 people.

Through the 'We are all Citizens' programme, under-aged migrants have been able to find a new home in Greece. A group of Roma children in the town of Drosero, Xanthi, in northern Greece, have been engaged in remedial teaching to cope with the challenges of their daily work in school. One of the most significant developments has been the support provided to children with cerebral palsy. Using tools of art, they have found new ways of expressing themselves, which greatly improves their ability to integrate themselves into society.

The 'We are all Citizens' programme has also emphasised the importance of cooperation between different actors in civil society in order to integrate and support young migrants. Varvakeios, the central flea market in Athens, has become an arena for fruitful discussions on the evolution of Greece's constitution and the rights of individual citizens.
