ABOUT THE TIMARETE HELLENIC ART FESTIVAL
Timarete Hellenic Art Festival was created as an annual festival of Hellenic Art and Culture from antiquity to today with the purpose of:
- promoting Hellenic arts and culture
- fundraising for the development and support of educational programs to teach and preserve Hellenic language and culture
- educating underprivileged children through AoHP's Sponsor-A-Child Program
- assisting malnourished students in Greece through the Hellenic Relief Foundation
The festival will host cultural events that have taken place in Greece and abroad such as art exhibitions, film screenings, theatrical plays, music and dance performances. The festival will feature Greek and international artists whose work has been inspired by Hellenic culture.
The festival is organized by the Academy of Hellenic Paideia Inc, a not-for-profit organization. The festival will be paid for by donations and sponsorships.
ABOUT THE ACADEMY OF HELLENIC PAIDEIA
The Academy of Hellenic Paideia is a not-for-profit educational organization based in Astoria, NY. It provides children with an interactive education by integrating Hellenic language with music, dance, theater, art, and the ancient Greek martial art of Pankration. It is our mission to encourage learning by the use of the classical Hellenic tradition of Paideia via the venerable Greek language. By guiding each child's mind by what amuses them, we may better discover and nourish their unique genius in an effort to promote their fullest human potential; mind, body, and spirit.
