Passages Exhibition 23 Aug – 11 Sept
The Passages exhibition is on display in the downstairs gallery at the Port Melbourne Town Hall until 11 September, 2017.
Presented by the Society with support from the City of Port Phillip through the Cultural Development Fund the exhibition looks at Port Melbourne in the 1970s, a decade of great change for the Borough.
A decade when Port Melbourne Council faced its first elections since the 1950s and under Cr Perce White and others, became more responsive to the community as a result, Beris Campbell became our first professional social worker, the Greek community, which had been growing through the 1950s and 60s, became even more of a major part of life in Port, Stylianos ‘Steve’ Kourakis became our first Greek Councillor, Phil and Jan Soldatos worked tirelessly with the Lions Club and on the Port Melbourne Festival Committee and Anna Robieson became our first female Mayor.
Passages is open 23 August to 11 September, 8.30am – 6.00pm Monday to Friday, 10.00am to 2.00pm Saturday at Port Melbourne Town Hall. Entry is free of charge.
