An extensive photography exhibition consisting of 140 photographs as well as a film festival dedicated to the old occupations that are at the brink of extinction. The exhibition features the work of 53 photographers from all over Greece, and the film festival features films of 17 directors. As time goes by, old occupations are abandoned, and the history and life details of the people who used to practice them fade away. The aim of the event is to keep the memories alive and to search the possibilities of reviving some of these professions within the modern professional environment.
