Challenges those affiliated with the arts to answer the call, in their own unique way and form of expression, to interpret the phenomena of the times: the crisis, solidarity, honesty, apathy, reactions, indignation, passivity, contemporary Greeks, outsiders, employment, unemployment, poetry, clichés,… Vassara, rural Greece…
