Specifically, Xarkis aims to bring about this change and sees as significant first steps the following three missions:

1. Revisit concepts such as ‘education’, ‘culture’ and ‘entertainment’ through academic and practical inquiries with the aim of creating ‘communal identities’ where people understand, appreciate and interact with local culture, history and the landscape.

2. Bring together people from diverse backgrounds, such as different age groups, social classes and professional experience, to facilitate constructive and fruitful collaborations

3. To create a learning space that fosters experimentation in relation to the methodological axes and practical applications of participatory and socially engaged practises.
