Every year, the Festival challenges thousands of readers to use digital technology to share classical culture and give Ancient Greek and Latin authors a wider audience worldwide through social media.
Anyone can participate, individually or within a group. Why not film yourself reading a few pages aloud and send your video to the Festival team?
It will be shared on the Festival’s Facebook page on March 26th and 27th with hundreds of other posted readings, providing the audience a remarkable, moving, and powerful cultural experience.
In 2021, we invite you to celebrate Apuleius’ ‘Metamorphoses’: please register as soon as you can to help bring this extraordinary story into the spotlight ! Once registered, your group of readers will appear on the interactive project map :
