2020 was the year of our 100th anniversary. Therefore, as early as 2019, we started planning new projects, premieres, anniversary events, unique cultural-artistic and educational events, tours abroad for the Romanian Diaspora, international partnerships we wanted to make the most of through large-scale projects and, of course, a series of large-scale investments in terms of the local heritage that the Atheneum in Iași manages.
Although we did not think that our long-planned events would be shaken by anything or by anyone, the pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2, COVID 19 virus reminded us just how fragile we are. Therefore, we had to find the necessary resources to be strong, inventive, creative and pragmatic in the strategic decisions that we had to make in a very short time.
Having an enormous respect and appreciation for the human resources on which we rely every day in the Atheneum, we organized ourselves so that everyone could be involved in feasible projects (in accordance with the existing provisions regulating events with and for the public), by online means, outdoors or indoors.
