Upcoming Events

London 2016: The Bicentenary Colloquy on the Reunification of the Parthenon Marbles

An announcement is imminent

To be held during the next northern summer this will be an important event.  It commemorates the 200th anniversary of the British government's purchase of the Parthenon Marbles from Lord Elgin.

Since 2012 the Colloquy, organised by the:

  • British Committee for the Reunification of the Parthenon Marbles (BCRPM);
  • International Organising Committee - Australia - for the Restitution of the Parthenon Marbles (IOC-A-RPM); and,
  • American Committee for the Reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures (ACRPS).

Leading the way

Beyond the initiatives of the Greek Government these three committees have led the way internationally in diverse initiatives directed at return of the Parthenon Marbles. All three committees have been in the forefront of a multifaceted campaign that has created many opportunities to draw on the multiple talents that people bring to this cause. 

Throughout 2014-15 IOC-A-RPM has made full use of social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Colloquy 2016 will see a broadening of our social media presence.  

As Colloquy 2016 approaches our social media presence will be widened but more on that later.

For now we encourage you to pencil in next June as the month for this the fourth international Colloquy.
