Wat je gaat doen

We'll meet outside of the entrance of the Hondos Center at Omonia Subway Stop ( look up and around ) and head over to the vibrant, intrepid and edgy neighborhood of Exarcheia.  There is a great difference between street art and graffiti ~ this tour focuses on graffiti rather than prettiness. Artists, Intellectuals, Refugees, Politics, Poets, Musicians and Colors fill these narrow streets.  Amidst the multitude of tags and bombings we will find treasures on crumbling buildings, metal doors and modern columns.  Paste-Ups, Stencils, Tall Roller, Brush and most of all Spray.  Along the way we'll stop at a cafe off the square for liquid refreshment, walk to the Autonomous Park ( the Anarchists took this piece of land through a protest sit-in and made a park for the community), pay respect at Memorials dedicated to Young Martyrs while meeting a cast of local characters. We will circle back to Omonia Subway before parting.   Many voices of the downtrodden working to uplift themselves and others framed by gritty anti-authority messages.  The old world and new world collide and mutate on this excursion. Power to the People!

Greetings~ I am Kat. Performance artist, writer and maker of small things. Originally from Chicago. lived in NYC for 8 years and was lucky member #21 of the Collective Unconscious (LES) . I learned, managed school and taught martial arts under Grand Master Kyung Sun Shin. Ran an after school program for kids in Oak Park Il. called the third eye club. I have worked with the Blind and Homeless Teen Genderbenders. I am a Greek/American and decided to live in Athens for an expansion of outlook and experience. Greece is much different from the place i spent summers in as a child. It has changed and so have I. Lover of Literature, bicycles, the sea, dark humor, plants, dancing and the esoteric aspects of humanity. Caring for ourselves and one another is the ultimate goal.

Fascinating tour with super historical accuracy on contemporary Greek history and culture, complete with personal twists and anecdotes to really animate the tour.

An excellent walk around the ‘anarchist’ area of Athens. Katherine knew places I wouldn’t have found myself and she had enough inside knowledge , including a shrapnel wound that made the experience better than I expected. She was a fun talkative host and I really enjoyed hearing about her performance art.

Incredible, perspective on Athens street art - from the grandest and most intricate murals to lowliest tags. I completely enjoyed hearing and seeing the graphic history of the area and how it intertwined with love, politics, business and local customs. Our walk was also a great way for me to discover new parts of Athens. Anyone interested in street art should check this tour out!

The description is very accurate for the trip. This is not a trip to Disneyland and Katherine is not Mickey Mouse. She will tell you personal stories from her history with art and within Athens (with attached battle scars). Overall a great experience for me and my wife but I want to ensure that others are not expecting a tourist-y experience when they go.

This is an authentic experience in immersing yourself in one of the local cultures of Athens. You will feel local passion, community commitment, alternative ways of looking at today's issues...all while walking the streets of Athens.
