Good in a crisis

Greece’s finances are in a dire state, and its government under pressure. The latest EU bailout package has staved off economic collapse for now, but unemployment is at a record high and many Greeks are feeling the effects. In Athens though, there’s a group of people busy at work, moving forward despite the situation, starting creative enterprises and cultural centres – even new hotels. Monocle heads to the Greek capital to meet a few of them.
