Digitized is hosted again in the magnificent Onassis Cultural Centre. Our workshops are hosted at Romantso.
The Onassis Cultural Centre is Athens’ new cultural space hosting events and actions across the whole spectrum of the arts from theatre, dance, music and the visual arts to the written word, with an emphasis on contemporary cultural expression, on supporting Greek artists, on cultivating international collaborations and on educating children and people of all ages through life-long learning.
The OCC is on your left as you travel down Syngrou Avenue towards the sea. It is next to the headquarters of the Ethniki Asfalistiki insurance company, and opposite Panteion University.
Take bus lines 040, 106, 126, 134, 135, 136, 137, 550, Α2, Β2, Ε22, Ε90 or trolley-bus 10 and get off at ‘Panteion’. If you are heading downtown, the bus/trolley stop is just 10 metres from the entrance to the OCC. If you are coming from the city centre or the Syngrou-Fix Metro station, use the pedestrian underpass in front of Panteion University to cross over to the other side of Syngrou Avenue.
Take the ‘red line’ (Line 2, Agios Antonios – Agios Dimitrios) and get off at ‘Syngrou-Fix’. Follow the signs to “Exit to Syngrou/Drakou” and you will emerge on Syngrou Avenue. From there, you can either take a bus or trolley-bus from the stop in front of the Metro escalators on Syngrou Avenue and get off four stops later at ‘Panteion’; if you are not in a hurry, it is a 12-minute walk down Syngrou Avenue to Panteion University, where you can use the pedestrian underpass to cross over to the other side of Syngrou Avenue.
Parking in the densely populated area around the OCC might be a problem, especially at night or during the weekend. The OCC has underground parking facilities for roughly 200 cars. Every level has designated places for people with mobility problems near the elevators.
Romantso, the former printing plant of the iconic “Romantso” magazine, is situated in the historical centre of Athens and functions both as an incubator offering office spaces for rent and a variety of services to start-up companies within the creative industry and as a cultural centre, organising and hosting a variety of, accessible to the wider public, events, on a daily basis.
Romantso is situated literally in the centre of the city of Athens, as it is just 300 meters away from Omonoia Square.
