Greek artists fight back against economic crisis

Help

Artists in Greece are fighting back against cuts to arts funding, as the country struggles to solve its debt crisis and impose tough austerity measures.

The lack of funding has inspired people working across a range of the arts, from theatre and music to street art.

Some artists' work is becoming more political while others are using humour to deal with cuts of up to 30%.
