In 2008 we founded in Thessaloniki the United Societies of Balkans (Ενωμένες Κοινωνίες των Βαλκανίων), which has since been supporting youth activities and cultural events in the city.
In 2018, 10 years later, we created a space for creativity and personal expression in Thessaloniki’s historical center. Balkan Heart awaits your visit at Agias Sofias and 8 Alexandrou Delmouzou str. for a seminar, a workshop or a cultural or community event.
