Welcome to FESTIVAL HELLENIKA, Adelaide’s annual multi disciplinary arts festival dedicated to the maintenance, development, promotion and celebration of Hellenic links in the Arts, and their rich and diverse Australian manifestations.

Formerly known as The Greek Cultural Month, the Festival is facilitated, coordinated and presented by the South Australian Council for the Greek Cultural Month Inc (SACGCM).

FESTIVAL HELLENIKA is part of a continuing and inspiring journey of exploration that has so enriched the Australian society, in that our activities act to broaden horizons, break down stereotypes, build links and foster greater harmony and understanding.

Zeno’s Secret by Dr Edward Spence

Dr. Edward Spence (Hons, 1st Class) PhD (University of Sydney) Senior Lecturer (Ethics), School of Communication and Creative Industries

ZENO’S SECRET-stoic philosophy and the art of living

TALK, PLAY AND DISCUSSION

In the 3rd century BC Greek philosophers proposed ways of living a flourishing life for the attainment of happiness(eudaimonia) and tranquility (ataraxia). In this presentation Dr. Edward Spence examines the Stoics’ significance and relevance for the 21st century. His play ZENO’S SECRET explores dramatically their teaching on how to be happy in an unhappy world.

Georges on Waymouth & Byzantine Wine Merchants together with Festival Hellenika are very excited to announce a wine dinner like no other, exploring the history and indigenous grape varieties of Greece.

Join us for an unforgettable night of food, fun, wine and entertainment as we explore the unique terrior from one of the oldest wine making regions of the world. Think Santorini, and the queen of Greek white varieties, Assyrtiko! Or the black noble variety of Naoussa in Northern Greece, Xinomavro! Not forgetting the most widely planted red varietal, Agiorgitiko.
