Mind markets

A NEW community market aims to evoke the atmosphere of the ancient Athenian Agorá – the Greek public space for the exchange of goods and ideas.

The Castellorizian Association is hosting the Agorá Market as a celebration of Greek culture, with Grecian food, music, dancing and wandering philosophers bestowing some millennia-old words of wisdom.

For youngsters there’ll be readings of Aesop’s fables, Greek mask-making, face painting and the kids from Mt Hawthorn Primary and St Andrew’s Grammar will be putting on a demonstration of Greek dancing.

The Greek festivites are free, and are at Castellorizian House at 160 Anzac Road Mount Hawthorn on May 11 from 9am-3pm.
