Classical Athens Institute

Classical Athens Institute is a plan to turn Athens, Georgia into a virtual living museum of Classical Athenian Festivals the first part of which was staging two of Plato's Dialogues - First Alcibiades and Ion - on September 24, 2012 (the first time in 2,400 years Plato's dialogues have been staged).

Cafe Apollinaire

Named for Guillaume Apollinaire, a poet, playwrite and author, who encouraged emerging artists arranaging their first exhibits during the Surrealist Movement in Paris. He coined the term Surrealism, and was a champion of Cubist painters. Cafe Apollinaire is held in the Cine Lab in Athens, where tables are arranged like the outdoor cafes of Paris, where artists gathered nightly to discuss their art and new ideas.
