Venue

The main venue will be held at ‘Vouleftiko’ in Nafplio. It is located in the southwestern part of Syntagma Square and is called ‘Vouleftiko’ because the first Greek parliament (Vouli in Greek) was housed here.

Parallel sessions and workshops will run at the Center for Hellenic Studies in Greece, Harvard University (CHS Greece) and at buildings of the department of Performing and Digital Art.

Nafplio, also known as Nauplion or Anapli, the capital of Argolis, is one of the best-known and most beautiful cities in Greece. Apart from its administrative function, it is also an important tourist center, bustling all year round. According to legend, the city takes its name from its founder, Nauplios, the son of Poseidon and Amimoni. In ancient times, Nauplion was basically overshadowed by Argos, which used it as a port from the 7th century BC. The city reached the peak of its glory when it became the capital of the Greek state from 1827 to 1834. On January 8, 1828, the first governor of Greece, Ioannis Kapodistrias, alighted at Nauplion. The city was full of cafes, and in the salons of notable local families, there were balls and literary soirees. A printing press was established, and for a short while, there was a reading room. On September 27, 1831, Ioannis Kapodistrias was murdered outside the church of Agios Spiridon, and on January 25, 1833, the people of Nauplion welcomed Otto, the first king of Greece. He remained in Nauplion for a short while until around the end of 1834 when the capital of Greece was moved to Athens.
