Culture Minister Lina Mendoni will present additional measures to support the artists and employees working in the culture sector, as part of a government plan to help the economy recover from the consequences of the coronavirus.
Mendoni's plan will be presented in Thursday's press briefing by government spokesperson Stelios Petsas.
At the same time, artist unions and of employees in the sector are calling on their colleagues to participate in a protest rally on Syntagma square at noon.
“The pandemic hit the arts and culture long before the necessary restrictive measures were put in place by the government. From the very beginning, artists and employees in the sector contributed with our art and all our strength in boosting society’s morale. We stayed at home, but we did not stay silent,” the Panhellenic Music Association, the Association of Greek Actors, the Association of Workers in Culture Events and the Panhellenic Association of Greek Singers said in a joint statement.
