The Co-President of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), Mr. Andreas Dracopoulos, granted a comprehensive interview to journalist Mary Adamopoulou for the magazine Days of Art in Greece, regarding the SNF’s activities and goals.

In his interview, Mr. Dracopoulos, among other things, refers to the starting point of the SNF’s grant-making activity, noting that the Foundation aims “to contribute to society as a whole and more particularly, to offer support to the fellow citizens that need our help the most”. Mr. Dracopoulos adds that “the bedrock of our philosophy is caring for people; to assist their survival and progress”.
