Yiasou, hello & welcome
“Men would live exceedingly quiet if these two words, mine and thine, were taken away.” Anaxagoras (510 – 428 BC)
The richness of Hellenic culture is revealed throughout society, in politics, art, and gastronomy amongst other human pursuits. In some ways, this culture is so familiar that its origins are all but forgotten.
You’re warmly invited to join the Foundation for Hellenic Studies, together with the Foundation’s Patron, His Honour Chief Justice Chris Kourakis of the Supreme Court of South Australia, in the development and promotion of Australian-Hellenic culture.
By talking, supporting and participating in the Foundation’s activities and those of its partners, you can help make the celebration of this culture anything but quiet.

As we clutched our sides from laughter and glorious food, we watched the Hon Nick Xenophon deftly expose the harrowing, hilarious and, at times, all-too-familiar experiences of Growing Up Greek as shared by Mary “Effie” Coustas, George “Journalist and political commentator” Megalogenis and Costa “The Gardener” Georgiadis. To quote Effie, “The best thing about Growing up Greek is that you’re never alone”; Costa, you may be the only Costa in town but one of many in the village; and George, you’re still on fire. Thanks for your company on Friday 23rd May!
