Cultural Association of Tholaria – Amorgos
Established in 1993, the Cultural Association of Tholaria – Amorgos was created by women from the island in order to showcase the dowry custom but also convey and protect the culture, traditions and environment of Amorgos and the Cyclades Islands.
The Association consists of 45 members; the Board consists of 7 members, who are elected every two years. Action is mostly applied on voluntary basis. Two secretaries will do all the office work.
The annual funding is raised through membership fees, private donations and sponsorships. Depending on the yearly activities and the amount of money needed, the Association receives financial support from the Greek Ministry of Culture as well as from the European funds for culture, music & film festivals, exhibitions, conventions and other events, organized in co-operation with the Municipality.
