Museums Victoria seeks photos of local Greek community for international exhibition

·

Museums Victoria are hosting an exciting new international exhibition in early 2022 and they want the local Greek community to be a part of it.

The exhibition is set to explore Ancient Greek journeys and cultural connections, and Victorian Greeks are being encouraged to send in treasured photographs of their life in Australia.

According to the organisation, they are looking for photographs which “record modern journeys and celebrate Greek Australian families and communities in Melbourne and Victoria, from the early years right through to today.”

That could include a snapshot of a family business or BBQ, a wedding or graduation ceremony, and even a sporting of community event.

Museums Victoria are also happy to take photographs from your arrival in Australia, whether that was in the 1920s, 1950s or even yesterday.

If you would like to send your photographs in, you can fill in the application here.
