CASTELLORIZIAN MIGRATION STORIES

castellorizian

Photographic exhibition presented by the Castellorizian Association

Greek migration to Australia from the small, isolated island of Castellorizo began in the nineteenth century and continued into the twentieth, interrupted by World War II.

The Commonwealth Government's migration programme brought more Castellorizians to Australia from 1946 on.

The island's population fell from 10,000 at the beginning of the twentieth century to 2,230 by 1931; in the 2011 census it had 498 recorded inhabitants.

During the exhibition a short film with interviews illustrating the story of Castellorizian migration will be shown at 1pm daily.

Date: Tuesday 28 March – Sunday 2 April

Start time: Tue: 11am-3pm - Wed-Fri: 11am-6pm - Sat-Sun: 11am-4pm

Venue: Kudos Gallery, 6 Napier Street, Paddington
