Kytherians of the world will gather in Sydney from November 17 to November 20 at the 9th International Symposium of Kytheraismos to celebrate the Kytherian Association of Australia’s (KAA) centenary this year.

Every four years, the Symposium is held in different parts of the world to celebrate Kytherians in the diaspora and their achievements.

The Symposium brings together people who are linked with the Greek island of Kythera whether through family, descendancy, academia, research or other strong links. The Symposium also brings together speakers from all backgrounds with the aim of increasing the flow of information and creating a network of business and cultural exchange amongst people of Kytherian Greek extraction from all over the world.

Activities associated with the Symposium allow delegates, attendees, fellow Kytherians and philo- Kytherians to meet and greet socially.

This year, the Symposium will be in Sydney and will involve two days of seminar type discussions.

There will also be an opening Cocktail Party on Thursday, November 17 at Coogee Legions Club (200 Arden Street, Coogee) commencing at 6.30pm for people to gather and meet prior to the discussions.

A number of topics which will be discussed at the seminars including the history of the KAA, the next generation of Kytherian diaspora in Australia, as well as the Kytherian community in Australia more broadly and its strong connection to Kythera.

Following these events, there will also be a Dinner Dance on Saturday, November 19 at Hermes Lounge in Kogarah commencing at 7pm.
