In 2018, children from the SOS Children's Village in Vari, Attica, visited the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens. The young visitors were given a tour of the Exhibition “MONEY. Tangible symbols in Ancient Greece”, jointly organised by the Museum of Cycladic Art and the Alpha Bank Numismatic Collection. They admired exceptional samples of ancient coins and were able to observe the various symbols engraved on the surface of the exhibits. The exhibition showcased 85 coins from the Alpha Bank Numismatic Collection, together with 160 objects (clay vases, terracotta figurines, marble and bronze statuettes, reliefs, gold jewellery, measuring vessels) from 32 Archaeological Museums and Collections in Greece, Italy, France and the United Kingdom. 


Children from the SOS Children’s Village in Plagiari, Thessaloniki, visited the Thessaloniki Museum of Cinema and participated in the Museum’s educational activities, which are sponsored by the Bank. The still and moving images, the sounds and the different cinema tools enabled young visitors to explore the history of motion pictures and to get acquainted with the magic of Greek cinema, from the very first, “awkward” efforts of the early 20th century to the films currently screened in cinemas.

During the summer, a Shadow Puppet Theatre performance was organised for children from the Lyreio Children’s Foundation. After the performance, gifts were given to the children.
