apollonia is an association based on local law created in 1998, on the basis of work conducted since 1994 by the Council of Europe within the framework of the Program of European Artistic Exchanges.
Today apollonia defines itself as a platform of cooperation in the area of the visual arts between European countries and, more specifically, with the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the countries along the Baltic Sea and in the South Caucasus.
apollonia is an autonomous structure functioning on the foundation of close cooperation with other European partners, both inside and outside the European Union. Thus the conception and realization of the projects results from the mutual support of the participating partners. A large majority of them are traveling presentations and thereby reach a wide European public.
