 Spread the Word!

If you are in London this weekend this event is a MUST! 
Support Greek Culture, 
Support Greece! 

'I am very proud of Greece is the Word.
 It started as a very small idea,a few  months ago, and now it has grown into this massive event - day - here at the Southbank Centre.
I was really upset at what was happening at the moment in Greece, as a journalist and  as an Arts Journalist specifically. I heard that the Greek book industry was collapsing, that artists, musicians couldn't perform, and I thought I wanted to do something about it...'
