Cycladic Identity

A NEW INITIATIVE BY THE MUSEUM OF CYCLADIC ART

OUR VISION

The Cycladic Identity initiative represents the Museum’s vision to expand its mission to the Cyclades and embrace its potential to contribute to positive change for the islands where the Cycladic culture was born and where it evolved.

Cycladic Identity acts as a donations’ platform, raising and allocating funds to projects that aspire to help sustain the Cyclades’ heritage and to support local communities, to essentially Preserve, Restore and Reveal the elements of the unique Cycladic Identity.
Cycladic Identity engages in an open dialogue with the local authorities and organizations that act in the islands. It wishes to provide a continuity to projects that are already impacting the local communities positively as well as support innovative programs that address unmet needs.
