Greek youth clubs across Sydney hold meeting to discuss future collaborations


The Youth Committee of the Cretan Association of Sydney & NSW hosted a networking meeting at the Cretan House in Marrickville on April 22, with other Sydney Greek youth clubs and association members.

The aim of the meeting was to network and create a dialogue between the different Greek youth clubs of New South Wales, as well as discuss the possibility of collaborating in the future. 

Present at the meeting were, Alex Mountakis and Ari Paraskakis representing the Cretan Association of Sydney & NSW, Leah Plakias from the Panipirotiki Enosi of NSW, Andrea Conomos and Despina Sideris from the Sydney University Greek Society, Katerina Andrews and Georgia Galanos representing the Kytherian Association of NSW, Peter Tsenkas from the Kalymnian Association of NSW and Kosta Papoulidis representing Pontoxeniteas Sydney.

“At the meeting, we discussed possible events such as Greek dancing workshops… where we can teach youth Greek dances from different areas, as well as a youth night possibly this year. It will be good to meet new people and preserve our culture,” Alexander Mountakis, President of the Youth Committee of the Cretan Association of Sydney & NSW, tells The Greek Herald.

“So I think we all bonded and we’re definitely going to host another meeting pretty soon to discuss things further. We all brought very good ideas to the table.”
