Dogs are welcome to visit Athens’s National Museum of Contemporary Art for free this Sunday for their “World Stray Animal Day” event. Plus, visitors would be welcomed by a “puddle of puppies” from the Socrates Shelter that are currently looking for homes. The National Museum of Contemporary Art is the only museum in the Attica region to welcome dogs. Artistic Director Katerina Gregos made it her priority when she started the role in 2021.

A group of artists across the UK, including Reuben Dangoor and Heath Kane, have been set the task to reimagine a series of iconic pub signs ‘au naturel’ in response to the threat facing pubs in the country, amid the current cost of living crisis. The campaign has been funded by Stella Artois, and the eleven nude pub signs have been made available for online auction via The Auction Collective. All profits will be donated to Hospitality Action.
