Why end up cutting articles from newspapers, save Webpage’s on your desktop or collect pamphlets from exhibitions when someone could do it for you?

The Greek Culture Yearbook has been doing that for the consecutive past four years!  It has collected and compiled all the controversial productions, key exhibitions, box-office successes and award-winning publications and films – everything that a lover of the arts should know.   Within the 12-month period of the year the Greek Culture Yearbook and Highlights magazine records and evaluates the most significant events.

/// highlight /// something (as an event or detail) that is of major significance or special interest.

Once the highlights have been carefully recorded and evaluated, well-reputed journalists and critics analyze the “highlight” in the Yearbook aiming to stimulate discussions on culture and the arts.  Primarily they try to interfere in the Greek cultural scene in a significant way, as they contribute to the development of culture through creative discussions. 

The Greek Culture Yearbook 08>09 is available in a bilingual volume (Greek and English), providing Greek speakers and foreigners who live in Greece or abroad with the opportunity to follow up on Greek cultural developments.

" Having studied the Yearbook vigilantly,
I find it an invaluable asset to any professional or any art and culture lover
who wants to remember and reference to what left its mark in the arts the past year! 
Truly, an excellent reference tool.
