The "KARTOUSA" arte venue is located in the area of Psirri, one of the most attractive and multicultural parts of Athens' historical centre.
According to the traditional craftsmen dialect, "KARTOUSA" stands for the decorative element that can be found on the entrances of neoclassic buildings, as well as the interior decorations of ceilings.
In the 1950s, the building "KARTOUSA" is today, was the beautiful yard of a house. Later, in the 1970s, it became a repair shop for motorcycles.
In 2001, we started developing a space that would become a home for feelings, creativity, imagination and dreams.
