Aims and activities of the organisation

CHORUS is a non-profit organisation founded to build a bridge between arts, education and society. It was established in 2016 in Eleusis by active and engaged citizens active in the cultural, creative and educational sectors.

Its mission is to promote humanitarian principles and values, to trigger public debate and mobilise the public on key social issues, to support the proactiveness of the Civil Society, as well as to foster respect for the rights of each individual through contemporary artistic creation, education and cultural activity in general. In order to design and implement its projects, it collaborates with teams, organisations and individuals within and beyond Greece.

The name of CHORUS comes from the chorus of the Ancient Greek drama. The chorus -the public opinion of the ancient city- plays a leading role in drama through speech, music and movement. It defines the play’s atmosphere, establishes its heroes and clarifies the poet’s message to the audience.

The Greek chorus frames the action of every tragedy, comedy or satyr play. All the CHORUS members believe that socially active citizens can -and must- shape the future with their words, passion, and attitude towards life.
