Event description
This is the story of a time long ago; a time of myths and legends. The 12 Gods of Olympus noticed that humans had a colorless and gray life, and so did they themselves. This brought an impact on everything that would go on, especially the way ceremonies would happen when sacrificing and trying to please the gods. They needed to do something, so they chose 9 Muses to help a TSU and bring everything back to life, through Arts and History.

The 9 Muses chosen were: Calliope (Epic Poetry), Clio (History), Erato (Music), Euterpe (Lyrical Poetry), Melpomene (Tragedy), Polyhymnia (Hymns), Terpsichore (Dance), Thalia (Comedy) and Urania (Astronomy).

These 9 Muses made their way through Patra, Ioannina, Parga and Lefkada, to help these 30 participants learn more about art and history, and have an awesome time on beaches and parties!

Create your own epic poetry, like the Odyssey! Or why not learn about dancing and dances? Comedies and Tragedies at a theater will lighten up our entertainment as a social program! And star gazing on the beach late at night and learn about constellations!

But when the Muses Combine themselves, you musn’t forget; SU become beautiful, colorful and have great social and theme events!
