This week, Panoply is delighted to be featured in the Iris Project’s web magazine, Iris Online. The Iris Project is a superb educational charity that supports the promotion of classical languages and culture to children and teenagers. As such, the article (written by Sonya) is aimed at teenagers. It explains what we’ve been doing at Panoply and offers suggestions for vase-related storyboarding activities. You can find it (along with lots of other interesting articles) at: http://www.irisonline.org.uk/index.php/features/features-archive/140-animating-ancient-vases
The Iris Project has just opened The East Oxford Community Classics Centre, hosted by Cheney School. The Classics Centre will be a vibrant new Classics learning venue for people of all ages to attend events, workshops, lessons, and exhibitions. We’re looking forward to attending their opening celebration this evening, a highlight of which will be a talk by Prof. Mary Beard. Check out the array of enticing forthcoming events at: http://irisproject.org.uk/index.php/east-oxford-community-classics-centre/programme-of-events
