The second film of the Global Citizens series is a tribute to the work and vision of the Co-President of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, Mr. Andreas Dracopoulos. The camera follows Mr. Dracopoulos as he navigates through the premises of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC).
Mr. Dracopoulos talks about the vision that has driven the creation of the SNFCC noting that “The idea of the Cultural Center was a place open for people, a way to make public place available in the real sense. As I walk around the Center I find it amazing how it came out. I think perfection comes in simplicity.”
In addition, Mr. Dracopoulos mentions that “it [the SNFCC] was a natural fit to the area, to the history, to Athens and to the future. People have been coming and they see it as their own. They do recognize the amazing possibilities of working together from a common space. The collaboration between public and private that happened here is a unique example for the global economies. […] A proper collaboration is the only way to move forward.”
In closing, Mr. Dracopoulos notes that “Seeing that through your actions you add value to different parts of the world…, there is no higher form of dividends.”
