Newell, Barry Strauss, and Ryan Balot.

Ambassador Loucas Tsilas, Executive Director of the Onassis Foundation (USA), stated, “The sheer variety of the subjects and viewpoints in our Fall 2013 Cultural Series testifies to the vitality of Greek art and ideas throughout the world today. From ancient traditions of drama and politics to contemporary trends in cinema and music, the many aspects of Hellenic culture continue to thrive everywhere—including the careers of the esteemed participants in these programs, and the institutions that are our valued collaborators.”

The categories of events on the Fall 2013 calendar are:

  • Public Dialogues: The third year of the wide-ranging series On Truth (and Lies) led by Simon Critchley, now co-presented by the OCC NY and the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM),
