SNFCC – Summer Nostos 2018

This year, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (ΙΣΝ/SNF) welcomed us once again to a large summer celebration; a celebration for the entire city, for every Athens resident and visitor. The Summer Nostos Festival (SNFestival) brought with it all the elements of the summer: enjoyment, carelessness, beautiful memories, even thunderstorms! It is an open and welcoming festival, with programming that encourages the peaceful coexistence of all people without exclusion, while welcoming everyone, both individually and collectively.

The Summer Nostos Festival was our summer for eight days. Stronger than ever, bigger than ever and with more visitors than ever before. The Festival included music, dance, sports, original performances, discussions, games, contemporary art, the 7th SNF International Conference on Philanthropy and an impressive line-up with the biggest names from Greece and abroad.

186,000 visitors shared the unique moments of this multifaceted festival with free admission and access to all, offering something for every taste.

And because the Summer Nostos Festival encapsulates the idea of “nostos” (homecoming), the inexhaustible desire to return to all things familiar; familiar emotions and places, which have helped shape us, we already miss it and start dreaming of the next one.
