22 February 2016

On Monday, February 22nd, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation broadcasted live the 61st regular assembly of the Special Advisory Committee of the Greek State with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) for the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC).

The Committee, which convenes on a regular basis, has been formed in order to monitor the effective progress of the project and work towards its successful delivery to the Greek State, as well as towards the optimal future operation of the SNFCC. 

The Foundation’s decision to make the Special Advisory Committee of the Greek State for the SNFCC meetings open to the public, via live streaming, stems from its commitment for the creation of a space that belongs to the Greek society and that promotes, as a whole, the value of transparency and the concept of accessibility. The first assembly of the Special Advisory Committee of the Greek State to have been broadcast live, was on January 2016. 

A few words about the Special Advisory Committee of the Greek State with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation for the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is the largest single gift of the SNF, totaling $831 million (€596 million). A Special Advisory Committee of the Greek State, which convenes on a regular basis, has been formed to monitor the effective progress of the project and work towards its successful delivery to the Greek State, as well as towards its optimal future operation. 

These meetings promote the effective partnership and cooperation between all parties involved, and are considered particularly important for the future operation of the SNFCC, as they provide participants with the opportunity to be informed on the developments of the project, to exchange opinions, and to timely manage any issues that may arise regarding the project’s operation. 

The Committee’s meetings are attended by the representatives of the SNF and the SNFCC, as well as by representatives of all the institutions and official bodies which are contributing to the implementation of the SNFCC and will have a key role in its future operation. These bodies include: 

- The Office of the Prime Minister

- The Ministry of Finance

- The Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs

- The Ministry of Culture and Sports

- The Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change

- The Municipality of Kallithea

- The Greek National Opera

- The National Library of Greece

Furthermore, the Committee’s meetings are attended by representatives of the Organization “Friends and Patrons of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center”, as well as representatives of the project’s management team and contractor.

The Special Advisory Committee met for the first time on June 29, 2007 and has since carried out 60 meetings. The first live broadcast of the Committee’s meeting took place during its 60th assembly, in January 2016.
