Would you like to be a part of the inaugural Melbourne Festival of Homer, launching in 2016?
Please join us for a festival preview with music, readings and wine on Sunday 15 November, 5:00pm at Tonic House Rooftop. The evening will showcase our plans for the Melbourne Festival of Homer, scheduled to launch in October 2016.
There will be short readings from revered poets and classicists including PiO, KO Chong-Gossard and Jane Montgomery Griffiths, both in Greek and in translation; a conversation with Barry Jones on ‘Why Homer matters’, live music, wine and a preview of our plans for the inaugural festival.
The Festival of Homer will celebrate the wellspring of the Western canon, and Melbourne’s special place in a living tradition. We’ve been quietly toiling away in preparation and we are inviting key members of Melbourne’s arts, literary, Greek and Classical communities to get involved.
The Melbourne Festival of Homer Preview is on Sunday 15 November, 5:00-6:30pm at Tonic House Rooftop, 386 Flinders Lane, Melbourne 3000. Capacity is limited, please RSVP here.
