A series of educational events for children and adults runs throughout December at the Onassis Library. Giving participants the opportunity to acquaint themselves with history and the arts, these programs are offered without an admission fee, but reservations are required. For the next weeks, they include:

“Zografigiseis”, an interactive narrative based on mythology, incorporating memory and phantasy games. As stories that have their roots in mythology come alive, the audience made up of children 6-9 years old, take part expressing their own ideas and emotions, and finally coming up with their own versions of the stories. On Saturday, December 9, the focus will be on the labours of Hercules.

Adults will have the opportunity to attend a series of lectures on the Neo-Hellenic Enlightenment, covering issues as crucial and as diverse as typography, education, science and the language issue. On December 6, Print Historian and Architect Konstantinos Staikos will be lecturing on “Typography and Ideology”, while on December 20 Visiting Professor at Bulgaria’s St. Cyril and St. Methodius University of Veliko Tarnovo Eleni Kourmantzi will be lecturing on the Ioannina Schools and their significance in education during the Neo-Hellenic Enlightenment.

Meanwhile, applications are open for the 2nd edition of the “Come along, I paint with music” program, to be held in 2018. You can find information on the program for children 6-12 years old with mild intellectual disability, here.
