The Iliad at Les Halles de Schaerbeek

Brussels, Belgium, June 28, 2014

 

The Readers were honored to participate in the third and final year of the fundraiser 12 heures pour la Grece.  From 2012-2014, this milestone program raised funds for NGOs providing assistance and support to those affected by the economic crisis in Greece. The 2014 program included lectures, dance and music performances, workshops, and more in celebration of Hellenic culture and its contribution to our common heritage. Our reading of the Iliad anchored the festival, with 200 participants joining together to revive and renew this monument of Greek culture.
