The Artist: Olga Alexopoulou


"An open community of citizens of Athens who love their city and believe that the compromise with the most problematic aspects of perpetuating a vicious cycle of irrationalism, stagnation, defamation, underdevelopment.

For us that Athens is not only a "finished story" but a vast field of inventive and effective actions that will make us realize the enormous potential.

We draw strength and energy of civil society, thousands of defenseless Athenians who want to do something for their city and it has not found a creative channel open participation in the affairs of Athens.

We are not partisan agency or municipal political party, but a vibrant community that wants to share her faith in a much better believing in Athens rejuvenating power of action. Tired nag, let us always blame others or the "state". We are only here to do. Seven days a week, 365 days a year."
