What is Athenaeum?

Athenaeum has become the largest arts and sciences display event in the Kingdom of An Tir and is highly anticipated every year.

This Virtual Athenaeum concept was devised as a way to keep the momentum and spirit of Athenaeum going and to continue to foster collaboration among our Kingdom's Arts & Sciences community in the wake of the necessary cancellation of in-person Athenaeum.

We invite you to join us in the return of our Arts & Sciences non-competitive showcase event on this website culminating at the second Virtual Athenaeum on June 26 & 27, 2021.

This site is where you will find all of the information you'll need to join us.

Welcome to Madrone

We are overjoyed at the success of our first Virtual Athenaeum which took place on July 18, 2020 and we look forward to more stops along the Road to Athenaeum in the months ahead.  It was wonderful to see the works of artisans and join with you in positive community.

We especially look forward to welcoming the artisans of An Tir back to Athenaeum again in the summer of 2021.

— Enzio & Spike, Baron and Baroness of Madrone
