Our next program in the 2019 Lecture Series will be held on Saturday, October 12 at 2 pm.
The program is entitled "Hungarian Diaspora Diplomacy: The Washington Perspective",
and will be presented by Zita Mirk, Diaspora Liaison, Embassy of Hungary
Diplomacy is defined by Merriam-Webster as the art and practice of conducting negotiations between nations, skills in handling affairs without arousing hostility.
That is a wonderful definition. Dr. Mirk will describe the Washington perspective on Hungarian diaspora diplomacy.
Who constitute to Hungarian diaspora? Well, that would be us.
The Cleveland Hungarian Museum will hold its annual Vintner Dinner on October 19, 2019. This is a wonderful opportunity to taste great Hungarian wines and also support the mission of the Museum. Our physical presence in Downtown Cleveland not only adds to the cultural vibrancy of Northeast Ohio, but is also a testament to the support our community gives to our efforts to present our cultural and immigrant history to the greater Cleveland area. Please join us for this unique event. If you desire an invitation to the Dinner, please let us know by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.Read more...
Once again the Museum participated in the Lake Erie Captain's annual Hungarian Heritage Night at the Ballpark. Along with the Hungarian Cultural Center of Northeast Ohio and the William Penn Fraternal Association, the Museum helped celebrate our heritage with youngsters through face-painting. Since the Captains initiated this evening of Hungarian Heritage Night at the Ballpark, the Museum has offered the children who come to the game the fun of having Hungarian folk motifs or the ancient Hungarian Runic writing painted unto their cheeks, forearms, and hands. Meeting folks with no Hungarian connection as well as those who do share our Hungarian heritage has earned many friends for our Museum. This event is a fine melding of the American favorite past time with Hungarian culture.
