events + collaborations
I'm very excited to share the following events and collaborations as I continue to imagine ways to include Greece in our lives. Hope to see you!

"Voltitsa" translates to "little walk," but its essence is so much more. It can be a meandering stroll or a walk with a purpose. It can have a destination or none in particular. A "voltitsa" is an outing separate from our regular daily activities. It is intentional, but implies fun and spontaneity, includes company, and helps us explore, connect, and be inspired by the world around us.
I'm very excited to partner with Kristina from Yia Mas for our inaugural Voltitsa: Find Your Muse, where we will explore the Metropolitan Museum of Art Greek and Roman Galleries together followed by a relaxing and reflective lunch. We hope you'll join us!
The intention of this first Voltitsa is to encourage mindful viewing of art, new perspectives, community, and ultimately to help you find your own “muse” or inspiration to carry forward. We’re also excited to share and find a bit of Greece in NYC and discuss how it has influenced the very halls we’ll walk through.
