The transcript of Dialogos Radio’s interview with Mehran Khalili of the Omikron Project follows below. This interview aired on January 24-25, 2013. Find the podcast of this interview here.
MN: Tell us about Omikron Project and what it does.
MK: Omikron Project is literally a bunch of girls and guys in Greece who are making creative content that can be distributed online – images, video, etc. – for two reasons. First to address Greece’s international image problems, and second to show the untold side of what’s going on in this country. We’re a grassroots project: we’re all volunteers, there’s no company behind us or anything like that. We’ve got zero budget. And we’re an open group – anyone can join.
MN: How did the idea for Omikron Project first come about and how did the project get started?
