Haida: Life. Spirit. Art

In connection with the Haida: Life. Spirit. Art exhibition (on display until April 20th at the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki), we invite you to a presentation by an expert on Pacific west Coast Aboriginal History/Anthropology and a Haida artist (Dr. Leslie Tepper, Curator-Ethnologist at the Canadian Museum of History; Evelyn Vanderhoop, Haida Artist Textile Weaver).

The evening event will include a lecture by Leslie (20 min) about the Northwest Coast culture with a focus on the Haida, followed by a talk by Evelyn (20 min) on topics such as weaving, family history, return of weaving to the community, followed by a showing/demonstration of the woven items Evelyn will have with her (10-15 min). The event will conclude with a Q&A. A slide show will accompany the presentations.

The event is co-sponsored by the Embassy of Canada to the Hellenic Republic and the Canadian Institute in Greece. It will take place in the library of the Institute on Tuesday March 15, starting at 7.30 pm. Space is limited and seats will be allocated strictly on a first-come first-served basis.

All are welcome!
Jonathan Tomlinson
Assistant Director
