One project from the last round sought to guide young people in Athens in turning oral histories into a hip-hop album, while another on the island of Tinos worked to capture local sounds on tape and local patterns in tapestry.

SNFPHI aims create a collaborative bridge across the Atlantic, activating latent creative potential in Greece while drawing on the intellectual traditions of one of the United States’ premier research universities. The result is innovative projects that engage the public in new ways of approaching, discussing, and acting on ideas about the world around us.

SNFPHI offers regular public events, focusing this year on “exploding the canon” in Hellenic studies.
