CULTURE NIGHT 2018


Dear members and friends of the Hellenic Community of Ireland,

We are pleased to invite you to the Culture Night 2018 event “Aesop’s fables”, which will take place on Friday 21 Sep 2018 at Gutter Bookshop, Cow’s Lane, Temple Bar, from 5 pm till 5:45pm, where stories from this great storyteller will be read. This event is an initiative of Dr Franchesca De La Morgia, Mother Tongues Director, and Ms Aimee van Wylick, Culture Night National Coordinator.

We will have the opportunity to enjoy our teachers Xanthi Bakoyanni, Vassiliki Ploumbi, and Paddy Sammon reading stories in Greek (modern and ancient!) and more.

We would like to thank Mother Tongues and Culture Night, whom our Community is supporting, and also Mr Robert Johnston of Gutter Bookshop, for making this event possible.

Greek Culture

I is not possible to appraise Greek Culture a a whole, through a computer screen.
Nevertheless, being aware of the force and the potentialities of new technologies, we tried to squeeze in this program the millennia of artistry, the centuries of outstanding art, the achievements of the human spirit, the routes on which the western civilization strobe in order to reach its current form.
