One of the main aims of ATHENE’s project is to build up EU-wide network of Mediterranean Ancient Theatres with all its benefits for entities and involved regions:

  • Mobility of products and artistic – cultural companies through the participant countries.
  • Mobility of professionals in the cultural management.
  • Intercultural dialogue.


Generally, the network is opened to all Mediterranean Ancient Theatres which fulfil the minimal standards and the established conditions of admission and which wish to join ATHENE NET.

On these grounds, ATHENE Network is opened to Cultural Operators in charge of the management of an ancient theatre or amphitheatre which is still used to artistic issues and where performances take place in a regular way (dance, theatre, music...).

Mediterranean Ancient Theatres that want to join the network must make a written application to the Board as follows.
