A versatile platform for artistic expression
PLYFA was born from the need to form a dynamic platform that cultivates, supports, and promotes creative freedom by offering artists a space for experimentation, collaboration, and exchange of ideas.
In 2019, the PLYFA team restored and converted buildings 7A and 7C into two independent multidisciplinary spaces of 180 and 100 sq.m. respectively which—together with the outdoor space of the complex—compose an inspiring environment for expression; raw, atmospheric, and at the same time fully tuned to the needs of contemporary artistic creation.
Through collaborative and external productions, PLYFA hosts a diverse programme of music, dance, theatre, performing, and plastic arts from both emerging and established artists, offering the public opportunities to interact with contemporary art forms and encouraging an open dialogue with society.

PLYFA is part of an urban ecosystem of artists’ studios and creative businesses that have taken residence in the building complex of the former Athens Knitting-Weaving Works (PL.YF.A) in the heart of Votanikos, a neighbourhood intertwined with the city’s industrial heritage.
