Lecture At The Canadian Institute In Greece On October 17th!

Andrew Todd will be speaking at the Canadian Institute In Greece all about Totem Pole restoration, and what he has been doing to the Chief's Crest Pole.  Here's more information about the lecture:

"The totem pole that has stood since 1975 in the gardens of the Residency of the Ambassador of Canada in Filothei is now undergoing restoration. The totem pole was built by the renowned First Nation artist Chief Tony Hunt and his relatives of Kwakwaka’waka ancestry in the 1960s. The conservator Andrew Todd from Bowen Island, BC is in Athens for the month of October working at the Benaki Museum under the sponsorship of the Canadian Embassy and generous donors to restore it to its former glory. On Wednesday, October 17th at 7:30 pm Mr. Todd will talk about this restoration project and the others he has participated in the Pacific northwest."

The lecture will take place on October 17th at 7:30 in the Canadian Institute's library.

The Canadian Institute is located at:

Dionysiou Aiginitou 7
