Greeks getting creative in the crisis

After three years of stringent austerity policy the Greeks have begun to develop creative strategies for facing the crisis, the left-liberal daily Eleftherotypia observes: "People are starting to see the crisis from a new perspective. In the literature and theatre, in the graffiti on the walls and in the changed consumer behaviour, and also in the demonstrations of solidarity, it's noticeable that Greece has begun not just to confront the crisis but to seek ways of living with it. Amidst all its fragmentation and extremes, Greek society has entered a phase in which the enormous difficulties are gradually fomenting creativity in the arts and in the demonstrations of solidarity. History has shown that prolonged crises produce a reaction full of creativity. … The fact that all this creativity is geared towards helping each other is additional cause for hope."
