Phoenix Athens is a nonprofit gallery and residency space in Athens, Greece that was started in November 2017. The project aims to support and empower creatives to trigger positive changes and transformation in societies.


The Residency program, Villa Exarcheia offers three to eight-week residencies to international students and practitioners in art and design who wish to produce and exhibit work that is inspired or informed by Greek culture and society. 

 Phoenix Athens gives creatives the opportunity to become immersed in the vibrant culture of Athens. The program is designed to test and encourage artists to develop their practice further through through the balanced delivery of theoretical advice as well as technical assistance thus balancing theory and practice.


The two gallery spaces which are located at the foot of Lycabettus provide the public with rotating exhibitions of work made by both local as well as international artists. 

A newly developed Makerspace offers rotating schedule of “skilling” educational workshops, catering to the sustained growth of the community and artists alike.
