On Sunday 26 November at midday, the Greek Community of Melbourne will be unveiling at the front of the Greek Centre, the replica of part of the Panathenaic Frieze from the Parthenon.
The event will feature leading Greek Australian political figures and the visiting Deputy Foreign Minister of Greece, Mr Katrougalos.
“The Greek Centre will be adorned by the most recognised symbols of Ancient Greece. These symbols will play an important part in identifying our Centre as the global base for the Greek diaspora,” said Mr Bill Papastergiadis, President of the Greek Community of Melbourne.
“The Greek Centre has truly become a symbol of the emerging unity and presence of the Hellenic community in Melbourne and the frieze will be a visible reminder of this. Tsalikidis family should be thanked for their generous donation for the installation of the frieze.’
