KONSTANTINA KARAMPOTSI

Such an innovative idea will undoubtedly have a resonance of its own. I congratulate your organizational efforts, and more importantly, your contribution to the cultural development of our country.

I wish every success in your project. We are all here to support you.

TETA GRIZOU

”That, which never happen we did not desire enough” writes N. Kazantzakis. He then adds ”There are no ideas. There are only people who conceive them. In the end, they are only as noble as the people having them. ” Your effort has brought me to mind the great writer’s words. I firmly believe your contribution will help in shaping the new cultural identity of the world. Well done to you, George, and your colleagues.
