World Guitar Day was established in 2021 on the initiative of guitarist – composer – professor Yorgos Foudoulis, under the auspices of dozens of international organizations of high prestige and great scope.

World Guitar Day has been announced in the UN member states and will be celebrated worldwide every year on October 18, with the first official celebration expected on Monday, October 18, 2021.

Each Institution can celebrate World Guitar Day in its own way and can optionally send its schedule to the Coordination Team in a timely manner, to be featured in the overall program of World Guitar Day. (Alternatively the festive event period may include more days, eg from 15 to 20 October).

Those Organizations or persons wishing to receive official representation and coordinate with the central program of events, should contact the World Guitar Day Central Coordination Office for information and support.

We invite any interested organization or person to become a partner of World Guitar Day anywhere in the world.

From September 1 to 21, 2017 in a suburb of the city of Anapa (Russia), at KARAKETZIDIS WINNERY ESTATE, the international program “Art Snergie” is being implemented, which includes workshops and outdoor ceramics. For this purpose, a unique combustion wood oven (Noborigama) was built and designed by the Claude Aussage French clay.

The idea of ​​implementing this project belongs to Ceramics Studio 4Ra ceramics artists – Elena Ilyusenko and Alexander Ssiyojev.

12 artists-ceramists create their works on the winery. They arrived from various regions of Russia, Georgia, France, Greece, represented by the Eytyxia Mora from Volos and Marianna Goudunova, from Larissa (sister City of Anapa) and Elena Ilyusondok.

Marianna Goudunova, the ceramicist of Larissa, first lit the oven!
The Greek artists sent to the conference the Council of the Hellenic-Russian Cultural Association of Friendship and Cooperation of Magnesia, a member of which is the Hellenic Spirit.

There is a tradition before launching a new Noborigam, giving it a female name.
Noborigam was named in Greek “Good Luck”!
September 21st will be the presentation of the projects.
We wish all participants to creative success!

 

 

We especially enjoyed our recent collaboration with the creator Christos Giatrakos.

Enjoy the Greek islands as you have never seen before!

I was so lucky to meet a modern patriot, a contemporary hero!

My friend J.P. is investing huge capitals, earned from his hard work in Australia, to Hellenic soil. To my eyes he is a hero for his patriotism in rough times.

A snapshot from our meeting with the President of Democracy Mr. Pavlopoulos, organised by the Pelion Development Institute.

An official dinner with ancient Greek gastronomy, by the World Institute of Hellenic Culture, in honor of Mr. John Pantazopoulos, the Australian Minister of Tourism, the Minister of Public Works, the Minister of Labor, the Minister of Multiculturalism, the MP of Victoria and the President of the Greek Parliamentarians.

Mr. John Pantazopoulos and his wife are hosted by the Pelion Development Institute and President Stergios Papaioannou, a collaborating institution of the Elxefsis Institute.

The Institute’s ancient Greek gastronomy sector undertook the creation of an ancient Greek dinner in honor of the outstanding Greek politician who excels in Australia, as well as the invited friends and associates of the two institutions.

An ancient Greek dinner was created by the Institute’s Chef’s at the restaurant Geusoktoras in Portaria, Pelion, with the contribution of the award-winning chef and an excellent partner of the Antonios Tsolakoudis Institute, owner of Geusoktoras and recently awarded restaurant, the first prize of: TOP 10 Greek and Regional Cuisine Restaurants.

It was a great honor for Hellenic Spirit to meet John Pantazopoulos, the opportunity to discuss future collaborations, as well as our acquaintance with the President of Elxefsis Kyriakos Kytoudis and the presence of the President of the Pelion Development Institute and Stergios Papaioannou as well as the friends and partners who honored the evening.
