Emmanouela Giannoulidou, "Armed with Art”: Music under the Greek and Spanish Dictatorships
Winner – La Trobe University VYT local competition (2022)

Martial law replaced democracy, silenced freedom of speech and confined the population. Existing research lacks a focus on the way the artistic collective documented those dark pages in history.
