A NEW CHAPTER FOR THE CANADIAN INSTITUTE IN GREECE
The Canadian Institute in Greece is pleased to announce its relocation to its newly acquired premises located in the heart of Athens, at 3 Orminiou street, near the Hilton Athens Hotel. The new, two-storey, historically significant building, is a prime example of 1930s Athens architecture, where the well-known writer, artist and art critic Stratis Doukas lived from 1938 until 1981. The relocation marks an important step in the Institute’s expansion and visibility in Greece.
Since its founding in 1974, the Canadian Institute’s key objective has been to promote Canadian research and education in fields relating to Greece’s heritage, including significant archaeological fieldwork and scientific study. Throughout the years, the Institute has had to expand several times in order to meet growing needs. By relocating to its new, spacious home, the Institute will now be able to further expand its activities to include arts and culture, by presenting the work of Canadian artists and promoting collaboration between Canadian and Greek cultural communities.
The current COVID-19 regulations unfortunately do not allow the organization of on-site events at this time. However, we will not fail to do so as soon as circumstances allow.
We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you to our new home!
