The 4th Little Paris of Athens is a multi-aspect festival of artistic expression taking place from October 6 to October 16 on French named streets around the center of the capital. The Petit Paris d’Athenes is organized by the Athens Art Network, the Youth Culture and Sports Organization of the Municipality of Athens and the Region of Attica with the support of the French Embassy of Athens.
Music, art and photographic events are scheduled as well as street art, theater and vaudeville. Round table discussions, educational programs, chess events and other activities are scheduled for this year. This year’s subject is “L’esprit d’equipe et les arts,” loosely translated as team spirit and the arts.
Highlights from the event are likely to include collaborations between artists. Groups interested in taking part in the festival still have a chance to send their proposals and a brief bio to the organizers at [email protected]. Those wishing to volunteer in offering their services to the festival are welcome to undergo training seminars and receive a special participation certificate at the end of the event.
Events take place in Vathi Square, the area beneath Omonoia Square up to Karaiskaki Square and Larissis Railway Station where there are many roads with French names, a meeting spot for Athenian urban culture and Greek folk tradition, as well as migrant cultures.
