Futures at the Onassis Cultural Centre, Athens

I'll be travelling to Athens to join a presentation of the anthology Futures: Poetry of the Greek Crisis, edited by Theodoros Chiotis and published by Penned in the Margins, at the Onassis Cultural Centre on Thursday 18 February.

Having last been in Athens when I was 8 years old, I particularly look forward to setting my hazy memories and mediated views of the place against its current, crisis-engulfed state; this fractured and multi-dimensional relationship to and impression of Greece provided in fact the impetus for my long poem 'Civilisation's Golden Dawn: A Slide Show' - my contribution to Futures.
