The Greek Centre for Contemporary Culture in Melbourne (operated by The Greek Community of Melbourne), houses four levels dedicated to the interests of all Greek Australians. The Centre will feature function and exhibition spaces, education and community meeting spaces, as well as the Greek Community of Melbourne’s offices.
The building also features eight levels of commercial office space, a street level retail space and a rooftop function space. Its principle design feature is the image of the classic ‘Discobulus’ (the Discus Thrower) made by the positioning of shade panels on the building’s glass exterior.
The Greek Centre events currently include:
- The Lonsdale Street Festival
- The Greek Film Festival
- The Greek Writer’s Festival
- Flavours of Greece
