The Museum of Cycladic Art focuses on the possibilities provided by the use of digital technology in a specific natural space (a term given as "phygital").

"Our goal was to stay as close as possible to you, even online, creating new ways of communication", says, among other things, in her message for the new year the president of the Museum of Cycladic Art, Sandra Marinopoulou, welcoming 2021 "With readiness and optimism" and informing about the new actions: From now on, our strategy focuses on "phygital" (physical and digital). Our digital actions will never replace the living relationship with Art and physical experience will always be a priority.

We are currently building a new friendly digital Museum so you can visit it at any time, from wherever you are. We will offer you for free what we have offered you for so many years on the Internet, while for a small price, one will be able to enjoy online cinematic narratives of our exhibitions, with our own curators as guides. Thus, we will approach the 'digital tourist', in all parts of Greece and abroad ".

Specifically, the Museum of Cycladic Art organizes:

First report of 2021

The exhibition "Archeology and Philhellenism. Thanassis and Marina Martinou Collection ", which would start in December 2020, is ready at the Stathatos Palace and will be inaugurated as soon as the museums open. This is an original exhibition for the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution, which includes important European works of the 19th century and Greek Neoclassicism in dialogue with ancient masterpieces from major museums in Italy and Greece.

ZOOM in schools and Online workshops for parents and children

In 2021, the "Zoom in schools" program will be developed, with livestreaming programs for students nationwide, which will replace the daily visits of schools to the Museum of Cycladic Art. At the same time, the weekend workshops for children and families will also be offered online in all corners of Greece.

Cycladic Art Virtual Tours for adults

In 2021 the Museum of Cycladic Art organizes live streaming cultural guided tours for special audiences (organizations abroad, embassies, companies, associations), exporting Cycladic culture to all over the world. An example is the recent virtual tour of the Hellenic-American Chamber of Commerce in New York, with 400 participants.

Friends of the Museum

In 2021 the actions of the Friends of the Museum are digitized. Friends attend a weekly series of virtual events designed especially for them. New media and original themes will be used: Guided tours of houses and studios of artists, such as the leading artist Jorge Pardo, Konstantinos Kakanias, Georgia Sagri and live streaming performances, most recently virtual cooking with Aris Vezene and Giannis Varelas.

Vulnerable social groups

In 2021, even greater emphasis will be placed on vulnerable social groups. At the beginning of 2020, VR tours took place in the Cycladic collection of the Museum, inside the nursing homes. The next step is to create a VR tour of the Museum's permanent collections for vulnerable people who cannot visit it, which will be distributed to nursing homes (KAPI), special education schools and refugee centers.
