    The Santorini Biennale of Arts announces the “Design a wish for Greece” International Poster Competition, a parallel project that aims to support the image of Modern Greece around the world.

    THE IDEA Greece is not only the country of Parthenon, the country of Aristotle's, of Democracy, of Philosophy, the country of Myths, the country that inspired millions of people around the world. Greece is a modern country like yours and suffers today from the unstable world economy.

    After years of living into an European umbrella characterized by the values of solidarity, of unity, of many “freedoms”, of fraternity, the economic crisis showed us that the truth of these values and ideas is far away from the reality as the latest phenomena our societies are living today is a kind of an economic “racism”.

    Can we really discriminate Iceland about its last bankruptcy? Are Italians lower class people than Germans? Can we defame Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and many other countries in the world just because of their economic situation? Ethically, we do not have the right!

    The “Design a Wish for Greece” project aims to fight the humiliation Greece suffers today and aims to show to the world that helping our country to retrieve its glory is an important action of dignity and solidarity. And is not an action like this only for Greece but also for all those people and countries that today they feel weak in front of the storm of the economic or military “power”.

    THE EXHIBITION The exhibition will be held at the same time in big cities around the word from 10 Jan 2013 to 10 Mar 2013 and then will travel to Santorini from 20 April 2013 to 30 Sept 2013.
