Adelaide celebrates another Odyssey Festival
The 5th annual Odyssey Festival held in Adelaide during the months of October and November, was yet another great success encompassing a large number of events spread over the two month period that left a great impression to Adelaide's multicultural community.
This year's festival was dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the Greek Orthodox Community of SA Inc.
It was launched on 5 October at the Olympic Hall where, in excess of 300 guests (including Premier Mike Rann who opened the festival and Opposition Leader Isobel Redmond) enjoyed the festivities of food, wine, plate breaking and dance in what became a re-visit to the old times of Olympic Hall, the ‘hub’ of this year’s 5th annual Odyssey Festival.
The 80-year retrospective photographic exhibition ‘Journey Through The Memories’ was a highlight of the evening, as community members reminisced over the many photos on display. Also on display where artwork submitted for the Odyssey Art Prize based on the theme ‘Community Spirit’, whereby Desma Kastanos took home the $2,000 prize money thanks to the Maras Group for ‘Refugees’ as judged by Art judges Andrew Hill, Alison Dunn and Russell Starke.
Odyssey's art judges also had the privilege of voting their favourite pieces in three categories in the Greek School’s Art Competition, where students where asked to paint a portrait of a family member who migrated to Australia from Greece. Winners were 6-9years Panagoula Parha, 9-12years George Papazoglou, 12+years Efrosini Siouzou. The Cathedral Project had Helen Makris win the prize for her interpretation of the Cathedral of Archangels Michael and Gabriel in Franklin Street.
