    The first Summer International Masonic Workshop will be held in Athens, Greece, between Wednesday August 27th and Sunday August 31st 2014.

    The event is a unique opportunity for Freemasons around the world, as well as for anyone interested in Freemasonry, and their families to meet, get acquainted and discuss options and opinions on Freemasonry, while they enjoy a summer break next to an idyllic beach in Athens Riviera. Participants sharing an interest in the Craft will have the chance, in a casual laid-back atmosphere, to communicate, exchange ideas and thoughts, to see old friends and to make new ones.

    The aim of this Workshop is to provide an overview of the most recent topics concerning the Fraternity, such as the role of Freemasonry in the 21st century, Regularity, recognition and fraternal relations, Masonic research etc.

    The Workshop, which is not affiliated to any masonic or academic body, focuses to host important discussions, to present different perspectives in modern Freemasonry, to offer options for expression, to bridge the fields of tradition and research, to expose participants to new ideas, to create a transfer of knowledge.

    The organizers have established a list of panels, debates and round tables and have invited several distinguished guest speakers, who will deliver papers and lectures: John Belton, Dr. Ric Berman, Dr. Eveline Durie, Antti Talvitie, Dr. Anna Zarkada, etc. (more speakers will be announced over the forthcoming weeks, together with the complete Workshop agenda).

    The Summer 2014 International Masonic Workshop will hold two different types of speeches:
    Lectures during plenary sessions by the invited keynote speakers.
    Short presentations by the participants in the Workshop.

    Short presentations will be selected among unsolicited applications, especially from papers that focus on new material evidence, new interpretations of texts, or new interpretive paradigms.
