About DIALOGOS & Ikarian Centre


The Ikarian Centre is my job and my way of living. It started back at 1995, when I discovered and decided to settled in Ikaria, the place where my father was born… After all these year, it still is an exciting experience. The Ikarian Centre is the “commercial” part of this expirience. At the Centre we offer intensive Greek language courses to anyone who wants to start or improve his / her skills in Greek language. We charge tuition for this. Today, apart from the courses in Ikaria, there are also courses in Thessaloniki, Istanbul, Norway (Oslo) and online!

DIALOGOS was founded around 8 years ago and it is the non-profit part of my life. The initiative was taken after a free parallel Greek – Turkish language course we organized with friends and colleagues in Samos, at 2008. The idea was, and still is, to use the language lessons as a tool against fanaticism, prejudices and intolerance. We continue on this path, buy organizing language lessons and common actions with Turks and Greeks. We also try to develop environmental projects and actions, that help to improve the quality of our life as well as the quality of life of our community. Apart from fanaticism and prejudices for the “other” beyond the borders, there is also the degradation of the quality of life. The environmental degradation is only a part of the general collapse of our quality of life. In this way we end up to “project pathways”, the volunteering, our will to host art courses and projects in our facilities in Arethousa…

DIALOGOS today is hosted by Ikarian Centre in the facilities in Arethousa and it is the resposible organization for the language courses and all actions that take part on the island of Ikaria
