Christmas at The Athens Conservatoire

The Christmas Meet Market – Athens Conservatoire – Ω2 Exhibition Space

Saturday 16 & Sunday 17, December 2017

17-19 Leoforos Vasileos Georgiou B’ & Rigillis, Athens 106 74

13:00 – 23:00 each day

It’s been 10 years since the Meet Market began in December 2017.  Since then, a lot has changed…we have grown in number of both visitors and participants alike, diversified our designers and producers, expanded our collaborations, and explored many venues … but our core philosophy remains the same… Keep it local, support the independents!  That’s why this holiday season, we are doing something fresh and also following tradition, by hosting 2 Meet Markets – one somewhere new and the other, somewhere classic.

Join us this Christmas, Saturday 16 & Sunday 17 December, as we head to the Athens Conservatoire for the very first time, to their fantastic underground Ω2 exhibition space.  We will be taking over this classic, super central Athenian landmark, and filling it up with 99 stalls of the locally made and the independently produced.  Whether it’s Christmas presents your looking for, something to do with your friends & family, or just an interesting stroll, make sure you join us for a weekend of market meets party, dj sets, interactive games, theatre & workshops for kids, storytelling, warm glühwein and overall holiday yuletide festivities!

The Meet Market: A 2-part holiday celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit… A nomadic market place of local goods, fresh ideas and friendly folk. An audio-visual jigsaw of handmade & independently designed clothes, accessories, art, objects, organic body products, home ware, tasty food, vintage & retro collectables, records, interactive games, free prizes, dj sets and good vibes!

FOR THE KIDS

“Fairytales and Christmas Carols for the 12 days of Christmas”
Saturday 16/12, 16.00-17.00
Every year in December, the calipers leave their saws and come to land of humans to tease and make their mischief. Every December the night grows and the day gets smaller. Each winter we gather round to hear stories and stay warm. Come to hear fairy tales for dark nights, that warm our hearts at the beginning of winter. Come to celebrate the traditional carols from all over Greece!
Narration: Taxiarchis Beligiannis
Music: Korina Gavala
