The Meet Market is back and ready to kick off the season in full swing (*wink *wink).  For the second year in a row, we are uniting forces with Djangofest Athens, a well established gypsy jazz festival, for its 9th year in the running, dedicated to the legendary Django Reinhardt’s music, that dominated Europe in the 1930’s & 40’s.

Join us for a weekend of Django Reinhardt inspired Parisian swing jazz concerts, music seminars, dance classes, dance performances, workshops, instrument exhibitions, interactive games for kids and of course, The Meet Market, with over 100 designers of local creations and innovations.

What are you waiting for? As always, the entrance is Free. Put on your dancing shoes and be there.

“A dinosaur at The Meet Market!”

The well-known dinosaur expert, Lizard Dinou, helps us learn through games, about these giant lizards that went extinct 65 million years ago. A fossilized footprint from a 4-year-old dinosaur foot is the inspiration for an adventure full of roars, big steps, horns and dangerous tails. A quiz with audio clips, gigantic egg imagery and, of course, the magic of the dinosaur dance are some of the stops of our travel through time and imagination. How does a dragon differ from a dinosaur? This question is answered again by Ms. Lizard Dinu with games of fire, tails and nests. At the end, we create colorful fires and leave our own prints on paper.
For ages: 4-10 years old
Design & Coordination: Katerina Adamara

Sunday 23/09 18.00-19.00
