What you'll do

We'll meet outside of the entrance of the Hondos Center at Omonia Subway Stop ( look up and around ) and head over to the vibrant, intrepid and edgy neighborhood of Exarcheia.  Artists, Intellectuals, Refugees, Politics, Poets, Musicians and Colors fill these narrow streets.  Amidst the multitude of tags and bombings we will find treasures on crumbling buildings, metal doors and modern columns.  Paste-Ups, Stencils, Tall Roller, Brush and most of all Spray.  Along the way we'll stop at a cafe off the square for liquid refreshment, walk to the Anarchist Park, pay respect at Memorials dedicated to Young Martyrs while meeting a cast of local characters. We will circle back to Omonia Subway before parting.   Unknowns and Big Names in Local and International Graffiti framed by gritty anti-authority messages.  The old world and new world collide and mutate on this excursion.
