Our mission is to preserve Greek culture in Paros and the surrounding Cycladic islands. This involves the maintenance of physical artifacts and historical places, but it also includes the continuance of local traditions and values. We aim to do this by providing upkeep for local monuments, artifacts and historical sites, while also maintaining some of the oldest Cycladic traditions. Our goal is also to advocate for cultural preservation further than just the Greek borders but to the world as a whole.
