EMBCA Presents Free Online Event on Hellenic American Art Exhibit on June 26

NEW YORK – The East Mediterranean Business Culture Alliance (EMBCA) has supported and collaborated with the Hellenic American Project (HAP) at Queens College headed by Professor Nicolas Alexiou who is also an EMBCA officer over the years.

On Friday, June 26, 6 PM, EMBCA hosts an online Zoom meeting on the art exhibit Prof. Alexiou has put together via the HAP Archives/Oral History Center, with nine Hellenic American female artists of the diaspora.

EMBCA scholarships to HAP students and colleagues have furthered and promoted Hellenic American studies. For example two past scholarship recipients and filmmakers, Nikos Ventura and Lambrini Thoma, have work in progress documentaries relating to Hellenes and African-Americans and their documentary has been used as point of reference in a recent Zoom conference with 30 scholars within the last few weeks. These dialogues and conferences have helped expand the discussion of issues not very well studied or well-known in Hellenic American studies.
