A Look at EYES OF TRUTH Photograher, Stavros Makris’, Inside Out Experience

Based in Athens, Greece, and with a background in biology and paleontology, I started traveling the world about a decade ago. Combining a passion for adventure with the curiosity my parents instilled in me from a very young age, it was almost impossible to stay put. Twelve years and 51 countries later, I still find myself addicted to traveling, amazed by the complexity of our nature, the vast differences (and surprising similarities) of various cultures and the immense beauty of the natural world. Trying to find a suitable way to communicate my thoughts and feelings while on the Road, I “stumbled” upon photography. Up until now it remains a near perfect medium to tell my stories.

A few things I learned about social design

By Adital Ela

Last week I decided to dedicate my weekend to volunteering in building mud houses in a Bedouin village in the Negev desert in Israel. The weekend was organized by an NGO that works in this village. Surprisingly enough, the weekend turned out to be a huge lesson in how NOT TO DO aid projects, and how easy it is to create more harm than benefit when you don’t address a process humble enough to be a mediator rather than a “trend setter”..

Μια -καθόλου συνηθισμένη- βραδιά στην Οπερα

Αυτό που συνέβη στις 12 Μαρτίου 2011 στην Οπερα της Ρώμης ήταν αναπάντεχο.

Περισσότεροι από 1.300 θεατές τραγούδησαν μαζί με τη χορωδία το, ίσως, πιο αγαπητό και γεμάτο συμβολισμούς κομμάτι όπερας για τους Ιταλούς, στέλνοντας ταυτόχρονα ένα ηχηρό μήνυμα στην όχι και τόσο ευαίσθητη για τις Τέχνες κυβέρνηση της χώρας. Αλλά ας πάρουμε τα πράγματα από την αρχή και όπως αποτυπώθηκαν σε μεγάλες εφημερίδες του πλανήτη.

"Eyes of Truth", a parallel event to TEDxAcademy, participates in JR’s TED Prize Wish: the Inside Out Project

When TED Prize winner, JR, announced his wish to turn the world “Inside Out,” inviting people around the globe to share a photo portrait along with a statement about what they stand for, MELD | Athens decided to participate. MELD | Athens invited six Greek photographers, including Adamantios Kafetzis, Alexandros Voutsas, Ioanna Ralli, Ryme63/StateOfMind, Stavros Makris and Yiannis Chiotopoulos to donate their time to create face-toface portraits of children from privileged and un-privileged social backgrounds living in Athens. These portraits will be posted as diptychs in public spaces in central Athens on October 15, 2011 as a parallel event as part of TEDxAcademy, which will take place on October 10, 2011.

Monocle News Report: Good in a crisis

Greece’s finances are in a dire state, and its government under pressure. The latest EU bailout package has staved off economic collapse for now, but unemployment is at a record high and many Greeks are feeling the effects. In Athens though, there’s a group of people busy at work, moving forward despite the situation, starting creative enterprises and cultural centres – even new hotels.

Stathis Kalyvas - The Greek Perestroika: Learning from How We Got Here

Although it is impossible to make predictions about the outcome of the present crisis, it is often easy to forget that every crisis, no matter how deep, has an end. What will Greece be like when it gets out of it? It will certainly be poorer, but will it be healthier? The only way is to
learn from our current predicament and reject the things that got us here in the first place.

Ο Γ. Βαρουφάκης γράφει για το ευρω-ομόλογο

Eurobonds: Not a question of ‘whether’ but one of ‘who will issue them’ and ‘who will back them

Ever since the Crisis erupted, Europe’s leaders have reacted to the suggestion that eurobonds are sine qua non with a familiar repertoire of responses. First came denial of the need for eurobonds, coupled with a snub for those who proposed them.
