It was one of those late March weekends, when nature and weather are still undecided whether it is already spring or not. I have arrived to Sofia by bus on an early Friday morning and my first steps in this city of wisdom were diving deep into the thick layers of omnipresent snow.

Last Saturday, March 31, eight graduate students from different departments of theatre organized a unique group presentation of their diploma works inside of the Alatza Imaret, in Thessaloniki. Even though each of these students graduated in a slightly different field, all of their works were more or less connected to the theatre.
The last weekend of November saw Thessaloniki taking a leading role in the contemporary art market all around Balkans. The city has in fact hosted the 2nd International Contemporary Art Fair in the pavilions of International Exhibition center (HELEXPO), attracting visitors from all around Greece and also neighboring countries.
If you live in Thessaloniki, it is impossible not to have heard about Biennále: 6 of Contemporary Art.

One of the most inspiring events held in town last month was the 3rd Thessaloniki Recycling Festival, a subject that needs to be taken more and more into consideration if we want this world to be a better place for next generations.
