"Macedonian Educative and Cultural Movement of Edessa", a not-for-profit organization, was created by people who love local Macedonian tradition and want to volunteer for the preservation of our rich cultural heritage. This heritage has lacked necessary protection in our country due to historical and political reasons.

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.
