Promoting bike culture

in Greece!


Supported by “START – Create Cultural Change”, a program of the Robert Bosch Stiftung, conducted

in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki and the German Association of Sociocultural Centers,

supported by the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation and the Bodossaki Foundation.

SAZMAN is a project that promotes bike culture and, in a wider sense, DIY culture in any shape or form. Through film screenings, art and experiential workshops, upcycling, group bike rides and bike repair workshops, we create feminist communities in various cities in Greece, starting from Rhodes and Athens. What connects us is our love for bikes – and the environment.

SAZMAN is inspired by the feminist makerspace movement, a movement encouraging women, queers, trans intersex and other marginalised communities to acquire technical knowledge on various fields, such as silk screen printing, wood work, sewing, smithery, hacking and mechanics and create their own DIY platforms, learning from each other and sharing their knowledge with their communities. 

If you want to be part of our community, or if you would like to offer workshops for another field of DIY-making, write us an email, come to our workshops, let's meet up and create feminist groups that make things together!


Come to our DIY bike repair workshops. Find out through our social media when and where our next event is happening and come learn with us. 

Group bike rides in the city. Our presence on the streets makes us more visible and demands the respect of the drivers of different vehicles – and of the pedestrians. 

Experiential and art workshops, discussions and upcycling tips, give us a boost and more confidence to ride around the city. 

Through film screenings we see other people's bike stories, we learn about bike culture in other places and discuss our own experiences.
