Athens WING event on Saturday September 29th
(www.athenswing.com)
YOU are invited to join our interactive presentation: I’ll Bet You’re a
Transnational! Presenter: Kathryn Lukey-Coutsocostas, Writer &
Community Advocate

Crossing visible and invisible borders changes a person’s perspective. And finding
the balance between your past, present and future is never an easy task, especially
when your past is far removed.

Kathryn Lukey-Coutsocostas has been covering transnationalism for two decades in
Greece’s national English-language press – join her in a female-oriented, interactive
exploration of matters that shape identity, such as: belonging, encountering fresh
cultures, speaking new languages, establishing relationships, fitting in at the
workplace, dealing with homesickness (and returns), raising children, and more.
Professionally, Kathryn Lukey-Coutsocostas’ columns, journalistic work, and
photographs have spotlighted the local international community in various
publications, like the Athens News, Insider Athens, Odyssey, ELGazette and the
ELT News. Her current fortnightly Athens News column, ‘On the borderline’,
specifically explores the joys and challenges of being a transnational. Privately,
she’s been a community advocate for even longer, serving – and creating – several
not-for-profit, migrant-related groups and networks in Greece. She blogs
