How to spread the history, the arts, the culture, the images, the sounds of a country… our country… in the eyes of a world that knows little about our present?

The literary work of Greek artists is rich and comprehensive; a source of expression of human’s feelings, thoughts and concerns about today’s society. It expresses the fervent anxiety about the social and existential deadlocks of modern Western humans and is stirred by experiences common to the whole world. Modern Greeks are the writers-travellers, with a perspective that aspires to be fermented with that of other peoples and creators.

With the project “A thousand and one…lit-gatherings”, K.EL.A.L.P. opens a window to the exotic world of the East and introduces our artists and their work, communicating the view and position of contemporary Greek culture for today’s society.

Within the framework of the project, three (3) online events were held, with the possibility of parallel translation into Arabic, in which an indicative work by twelve (12) Greek artists was presented. The material of the events is available in the special tribute published at the end of the project.

The project “A thousand and one…lit-gatherings” was implemented in 2021 under the auspices and with the kind support of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports.
