The Albanian Institute is deeply committed to finding new ways to connect and engage with our community and network of collaborators from around the world, both on- and offline.

The Albanian Institute’s events are lively forums for exchanging ideas and sharing impactful stories. We regularly invite thinkers and educators, artists and activists, and poets and novelists to engage in dialogue with each other and with our broader community about our shared human experiences.

Designed as a way for our audiences to engage digitally in real-time with artists of various disciplines, creatives, thought-leaders, and cultural luminaries the Albanian Institute’s online series LIVE TALK invites members of the community to take up and take over the Institute’s digital platforms as public forum for conversations on the issues that matter most right now.

Follow us on Instagram @albanianinstitute and facebook/albanianinstitute and be part of the conversation. There are new topics and themes ongoing, so tune in and stay connected.
