DIALOGUES in Summer, SNF’s Wide-Range Discussion (Video)

ATHENS – To help make sense of the extraordinary times we have been living through, starting in April 2020 the SNF DIALOGUES moved online for a series of live webcasts. These wide-ranging discussions have addressed social isolation, news and misinformation, the economy, the arts, and tourism. On Wednesday, August 26 at 20:00 (GMT+3), the SNF DIALOGUES will take stock of where we stand now, revisit past expectations, and contemplate the shape of things to come, SNF says in its announcement.

We will reconnect with a speaker from the DIALOGUES event held last August in Athens’ Mavili Square before “social distancing” was part of our vocabulary, check back in with speakers we’ve heard from during the COVID-19 era, and get a fresh perspective on the city’s cultural and public life from a new speaker. From a rooftop in Athens, the SNF DIALOGUES will bid farewell to a strange summer and discuss what the coming seasons might have in store.

Participants in the “DIALOGUES in Summer” webcast:

– Yorgos Avgeropoulos, Journalist, Filmmaker

– Andreas Dracopoulos, SNF Co-President

– Vasilis Kekatos, Film Director

– Lina Rokou, Journalist, Writer

– Konstantinos Tzoumas, Actor, Radio Host, and Writer

The DIALOGUES are curated and moderated by Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou.
