After the extremely successful completion of the programme of events and activities in the summer of 2023, the Ministry of Culture’s institution “All of Greece one Culture” returns in 2024 with its fifth edition, which has as its central thematic axis the concept of “conflict“. In this context, the Ministry of Culture invites artists and artistic groups to create new works that relate to this theme, which is articulated in four sub-themes running through the fields of political, economic, cultural and mental life:
- Internal conflict
- Conflict of civilisations
- Conflict of interests
- Conflict in wartime.
The 2024 programme will be made up of proposals selected by a Special Evaluation Committee of the Ministry of Culture, following an open call for proposals addressed to cultural institutions operating in the form of Urban Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs).
Proposals will be submitted electronically through the Register of Cultural Entities (https://drasis.culture.gr/index.php/allofgreeceoneculture-gno) from Monday 4 December 2023 till Monday 22 January 2024.

- Dance (all genres: classical, contemporary, etc.). Requires original music or adaptation/re-arrangement of existing music
