Season's Greetings

Season's Greetings

Fulbright forges connections in an intricate and ever-changing world.

The Fulbright Greece team wishes our grantees, alumni, board members, partners, donors and friends a wonderful holiday season and a bright year ahead!

We share this luminous spirit with an excerpt from George Sarantaris' poem Ἄσπρες ἰδέες / White Ideas*

Expanding its circle
Dancing with people
Dancing with us even
Who think only of the light

Ν’ ἁπλώνει τὸ γῦρο του
Νὰ χορεύει μαζὶ μὲ τοὺς ἀνθρώπους
Νὰ χορεύει μὲ μᾶς τοὺς ἴδιους
Ποὺ σκεπτόμαστε μονάχα τὸ φῶς

*Abyss and Song: Selected Poems is a new publication with poems by George Sarantaris, translated from Greek by author, poet, and Fulbright Alumna Pria Louka.

“Education is a slow moving – but powerful force” Senator J. William Fulbright (1905-1995)
The artist remarks: “…The symbol of wisdom, the owl, in combination with the symbol of freedom of the soul, the butterfly, express the idea of a holistic effort that is required in order to achieve deep knowledge and spiritual evolution." ©
The artwork work is featured in the Art Supports Education – Fulbright Alumni Art Series.
