Those interested in Greek history will have an opportunity to be fully immersed, as part of an event presented by La Trobe University Library, in partnership with the Society of Hellenic Studies and Research.
The Dardalis Archives of the Hellenic Diaspora’s 25th anniversary event will enable visitors to walk through the Greek Archives and experience Greek history, culture and the wider Hellenic diaspora.
It will feature a unique collection of items from La Trobe University’s Archives, including photographs, costumes, records, newspapers and much more.
Visitors will witness our collections coming to life through traditional Greek dancing, costumes, food, live music and the official launch of the Greek Costumes Digital Exhibition.
La Trobe University Librarian, David Groenewegen says the event will offer a rare behind-the-scenes look at La Trobe University’s Dardalis Archives.
“Archives enrich our understanding of human history and culture. We’re proud to open our doors and make our archives more accessible to the public” says Mr Groenewegen.
Date: Sunday 27 November, 12 pm – 4 pm
Location: The Dardalis Archives of the Hellenic Diaspora, 49 Ernest Jones Drive, Macleod VIC 3085.
