On Monday October 25 the Institute hosted the first in-person event at its new premises, the three-storey 1930s house at 3 Orminou Street, close to the Hilton Hotel. We had moved into the new building almost exactly a year before, but the COVID restrictions on gatherings meant that we were not able to welcome guests until this autumn.
The event was a public lecture by long-time supporter and Board member of the Institute, Emeritus Professor Gerald P. Schaus. Prior to the lecture we unveiled a plaque on the building’s exterior bearing the Institute’s name. To the unveiling we invited just a few old friends and supporters of the Institute; the official opening of the new premises is scheduled to take place in the early summer of 2022.
In the meantime, we intend to host a few more in-person events this winter and spring, so you will have the opportunity to visit the Institute even before it is officially opened. Until then, you can view some more photos from the unveiling on the Institute’s facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CIGICGAthens/
