Celebration of Hellenism at the Chau Chak Wing Museum in Sydney this May




A Greek taverna with live music and tavli boards will be recreated at the University of Sydney’s Chau Chak Wing Museum as part of a weekend long celebration of Greek culture and heritage on May 20 – 21. 

Alongside dance troupes and live music, the weekend will feature a pop-up exhibition of traditional costumes of the different regions of Greece and the National Costumes designed by the first King and Queen of Greece, Othon and Amalia, circa 1837.

Museum curators and experts from the Hellenic Lyceum of Sydney will offer floor talks on the history of these traditional costumes, the stories of the families who previously owned them and invite visitors to explore the ancient Greek artefacts on display throughout the museum.

Inspired by the current exhibition Impressions of Greece and Woodhouse historic photograph collection, this cultural celebration is part of the 2023 Greek Festival of Sydney, delivered in partnership with the Hellenic Lyceum of Sydney.
