The City of Sydney Historical Association are hosting Leonard Janiszewski and Effy Alexis to present Enterprise and Diversity: Greek-Australian Occupational Pursuits Beyond the Greek Cafe, 1810s to Present. 

They will discuss how throughout the late nineteen century until the closing decades of the twentieth century, Greeks played a large part in Australia’s food catering industry. They continued, nevertheless, to enter a wide variety of occupations. This presentation firmly challenges the entrenched, popular stereotype of Greek-Australians as being historically defined as essentially a collection of fish’n’chip shop owners and café and milk bar proprietors.

This promises to be a fascinating talk and all are welcome to attend. Tickets will be $3 for members of COSHA and $6 for visitors, no bookings are necessary. 

When:    Saturday, 8th December, 2018 2pm
Where:   Sydney Mechanics School of Arts, 280 Pitt Street, Sydney
Cost:      Members $3, Visitors $6
