Greece: Archaeological sites to host 70 new productions

Seventy new productions will be staged at 66 archaeological sites across the country as part of “All of Greece, one Culture,” a two-month Greek Culture Ministry initiative starting July 15, which was unveiled to the media Wednesday.

The 2.23-million-euro program, which is funded by the ministry, was inaugurated last year in a bid to soothe the pandemic-hit culture sector. Culture Minister Lina Mendoni was optimistic that increasing vaccinations will allow the program to proceed uninhibited despite a surge in Covid cases.

“All of Greece, one Culture” is an initiative which the Ministry of Culture is trying to “beam” contemporary culture into its historic heritage sites, with activities in archaeological sites and the open spaces around museums, activating the bodies under its supervision and their collaboration with the free market of contemporary culture.
