In collaboration with other educative and cultural associations from the
region of Macedonia, the entire Greek territory, and other Balkan countries,
our organization will help to highlight local Macedonian cultural expression,
both ancient and modern.
One of our most important initiatives will be to preserve and make
available all forms of traditional folklore which are under threat of
disappearing, like the local Macedonian language of each region of Macedonia,
the traditional songs that are sung in that language, as well as the old
customs, tales and stories of these regions. The Organization will also help in
showcasing young artists who often do not have the means to display their art.
At the "Macedonian Educative and Cultural Movement of Edessa"
we believe it will be a facilitating and vibrant, living community of cultural
presentation, which will provide the continuity of our heritage. Our
responsibility towards future generations is great, as we seek to convey the
morals, customs, traditions, culture and language of our ancestors. This is our
duty and our purpose.
