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.
1 April - 31 May
The Sculptures of the Acropolis – A Retrospective
Exhibited for the very first time in Australia, if not the world, is this magnificent selection of Sculptures from the Acropolis. Come and get up close to a Caryatid, Poseidon, and 13 other replica sculptures that tell a story that is steeped in history, art and majesty. Official launch on 31 March with free admission through April and May at the Festival Theatre Foyer in the Adelaide Festival Centre. Don’t miss it because it won’t be seen again.
