Pireus will soon be a cultural incubator in the Lazarz district. Its name ‘Pireus’ has been kept from the Greek restaurant that was using the space before.
In January 2015, a local diagnosis showed that there was a need for common space in the district open for new cultural and social initiatives. The idea of Cultural Incubator results from the process cooperation between local initiative Otwarta Strefa Kultury Lazarz, Project Coordination and Urban Regeneration Office (City Hall), District Council and Municipal Real Estate Management Agency.
The refurbished former restaurant space will ensure the incubator a well-situated and visible corner place open and accessible for new cultural and social initiatives.
An inter-institutional team consisting of local NGOs, district council and City Hall is managing Pireus on a preferential renting basis of the space.
