A Family Affair

“A Family Affair” can be used in the classroom or workshops, to explore Cretan music, Greek society, culture and language. It is a powerful document of this vibrant music, but also of how tradition is passed on from one generation to another.

Since we started this project, we have seen immense interest across the world, by individuals, associations, music and dance groups, schools and universities, to use the film to make Cretan music known to a broader international audience. 

That's why we teamed up with Maria Hnaraki, founding director of Greek Studies at Drexel University and author of "Cretan Music: Unravelling Ariadne’s Thread", to bring the film and Cretan music to classrooms across the world –especially in communities of the Greek diaspora. 

We created an educationnal guide, comprising three lesson plans suitable fro children from 5th grade onwards, High School students and adults. These are offered free of cost and can help teachers use ‘A Family Affair’, not only to teach Greek but to encourage students connect with Greek music, poetry, dance and culture.

We also encourage Greek communities in the US, Australia and Europe, to host their own screenings of the film and special events dedicated to Cretan culture.  

The educational programme’s main implementation is due to the generous support of “Cultural Crete-USA, Inc and additional funds via a crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter.
