Several cultural institutions provide educational programmes in the field of culture addressing children, young people and adults. Several museums, such as the National Archaeological, the Byzantine and Christian, the Benaki, the Numismatic, and the Acropolis Museum, offer free educational activities for primary, middle and high school students. Other initiatives have been an opera education programme for school students organised by the Athens Music Hall in 2011, an educational programme organised by the Archaeological Museum of Marathon for the celebration of 2.500 years since the Battle of Marathon, programmes related to visual arts and history organised by the Theoharakis Foundation or the Herakleidon Museum, etc.

There are private initiatives offering a range of arts-related educational programmes and recreational activities for children and young people in different forms of art (theatre, visual arts, games, comics etc). Moreover, several organisations offer cultural leisure activities and arts- related education for adults in the form of seminars or short courses (not leading to any recognised diploma) in different fields, ranging from creative writing to film production.
