On 15th July 2017, New Acropolis celebrated 60 years since its establishment in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The birthday is celebrated in centres around the globe, and 60 years is a special landmark. 60 years is often marked as a diamond jubilee, diamond which is a unique element symbolising purity and strength. In this short time, New Acropolis has grown to more than 60 countries under the common banner of Philosophy, Culture and Volunteering.
Im Mumbai, over 80 members came together for a cultural evening with performances celebrating the spirit of philosophy. Letter reading, pantomime, Bollywood acts and dance were some of the performances for the evening, emphasising that philosophy is indeed joyous! The celebration ended with a montage video of members and volunteers in action at New Acropolis. Tuned to a popular peppy song, this video enunciated and reflected the jovial mood of the celebration.
