Along side the Meet Market XMAS-extravaganza, we will also be hosting a multitude of free activities and productions for all age groups. All weekend long, in the music stage of Athinais, you can find something entertaining to do, from childrens theatre productions, ornament-making workshops, rap seminars for kids, origami, dance classes for adults in swing, tango and dun dun african dance, and a whole lot more!
This year, the Meet Market is also getting in the season of sharing and giving by cooperating with a very unique charity called globetops. And its not about money donations but about e-donations. That's right, bring your old or extra laptops, no matter how broken they are, and they will be shipped off, fixed and given to someone in need… or if they are beyond salvation, bring them so they can be recycled responsibly. S0, bring your friends, bring your parents, bring your kids, bring your old laptop, or even come alone because there really is something for everyone.
