Voice of Greece, ERT’s global radio, has included the “Greeks around the world” series in its program since 2022. These are shows curated by Greeks abroad, in the country where they live, introducing us to our fellow Greeks and their local activities. The start was made with ‘Greece in Denmark‘, then moved on to ‘Greece in Luxembourg‘ and now we are pleased to announce that ‘Greece in Argentina’ is also joining this project.

The new show “Greeks around the world – Greece in Argentina” is the result of a collaboration between Voice of Greece and the Greek Cultural Organization “Nostos” based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The show is curated and presented by Christina Tsardikou, the president of the organization “Nostos”.
