Hellenic Museum Ladies’ Society to celebrate International Women’s Day

·

The Hellenic Museum Ladies’ Society (HMLS) is celebrating International Women’s Day this year with a special event at the Museum on March 11 from 1pm to 3pm.

The event will help the Society raise funds for its Education Mission, whilst also recognising women who make significant contributions to Australian society.

On the day, attendees will hear from the Hellenic Museum CEO & Head of Curation, Sarah Craig, about the organisation’s commitment to providing transformative education programs and experiences for young people.

The Hellenic Museum’s Education Partner, Lithodomos VR, will present a virtual reality experience where people will see the wonders of Delphi and learn about the women at the centre of one of the most powerful religious institutions of the ancient world. 

Entertainment, lunch and refreshments will also be available to enjoy throughout the event.

“The Hellenic Museum Ladies’ Society is delighted to be presenting this International Women’s Day event in 2022. This engaged community of women has helped to raise over $250,000 for the Hellenic Museum in the past and we look forward to welcoming new members of our HMLS Patrons program,” the Hellenic Museum’s CEO and Head of Curation, Sarah Craig, said.

“As a female-led team, the Hellenic Museum celebrates the role of women in the arts and through HMLS, provides an active avenue for like-minded people to connect over their interest in art, business, and inspiring cultural events. 

“With Education Partner, Lithodomos VR, and Event Partners, Showtime Event Group, Giannarelli International and Event Sponsor Rigby Cooke Lawyers, we gather to raise funds for the Hellenic Museum Education Mission, which seeks to support students to develop into 21st century citizens through holistic humanities education.

“We know that arts, culture and history education can be life-changing. Through our unique and well-rounded programs we aspire to help address the inequality in arts experiences for students from disadvantaged backgrounds and impact their learning long term.”
