New Events for a New Year at the Embassy!

Happy New Year! Best wishes for a 2012 filled with health, happiness, and of course, more Greek culture! The Embassy is proud to present the following exciting events to celebrate Greek culture in the new year:

On January 4th, the first Wednesday of the month, on our regular 8:00pm rendez-vous at the AVALON Theatre, we will showcase the multiple-award winning film “Matching Jack” by the famous Greek-Australian female directorNadia Tass. Shipped directly from Down Under, we bring to the cinephiles of Washington Tass’s fresh view of life from a different yet familiar perspective.

On January 19th, at 7:00pm we will start our 2012 “Health, Nutrition and Fitness” series with an overview of the most recent discoveries in Health and Medicine, titled: “The Impact of Modern Genetics In Our Lives" by distinguished scientist Dr. Constantine A. Stratakis, MD, DMSci, NICHD, NIH. The lecture will take place at the Embassy of Greece.

On January 27th, at 6:30pm the Library of Congress in partnership with the Embassy of Greece and the National Endowment for the Arts will pay tribute to Greece’s Nobel laureate Odysseas Elytis for the significant contribution and influence of his poetry to the Spanish-speaking world. This will be one of its kind and not-to-be-missed event.
