Dr. Fredrik Hiebert, National Geographic’s Fellow Archeologist will converse with Dr. Zoe Kosmidou, Director of the Hellenic Foundation for Culture in the USA, on how the exhibition: “The Greeks: From Agamemnon to Alexander the Great” set sail with 560 priceless treasures from 22 museums across Greece, to bring an extraordinary cultural experience to Washington, D.C. In their conversation, they will narrate the fascinating story of the diplomatic way that the exhibition was born six years ago. Dr Hiebert will conclude by introducing the recent National Geographic’s initiative about preserving World’s Cultural Heritage.

Registration is closed. The event is filled to capacity.
