|9||Sun||Sunday 9 October - The Hellenic Centre 2nd London Hellenic Festival October has always been linked with moving to London to study, to look for a job. It marks for many of us the coming back from our native home to our real home and is one way a turning point of life in London; it is the time when Greeks and Cypriots, students and professionals, new-comers and people who feel like Londoners need to get together and discuss our national identity and sense of belonging, a constant discussion topic for Greeks and Cypriots abroad - especially this year following Brexit and its consequences for the EU citizens in the UK. This one day festival consists of everything you need for a Sunday: discussions with the audience, film screenings, live music and more. Programme details available at a later stage. Tickets will be released on 22 August at www.ark4art.com. Organised by Ark4Art and the Hellenic Centre.|

|17||Mon||Monday 17 October, 7.15pm - The Hellenic Centre Aristotle on Rationality in Action Prof Anthony Price, Birkbeck College will discuss how according to Aristotle the conclusion of a piece of practical reasoning is an action (if nothing gets in the way) and that one can act, as well as think, rationally. Man is an animal that acts on reasons, and we are responsible for what we do. Here, as elsewhere, Aristotle can rescue us from the trammels of a dualism of mind and body.
