In 2019 Adelaide’s Hellenic Cultural Festival ODYSSEY celebrates its 14th year as the Greek Orthodox Community of SA Inc. (GOCSA) once again presents a series of exciting arts and cultural events starting on October the 4th, 2019.

With this year’s theme being “Education Through Greek Arts”, in 2019 Odyssey will celebrate Hellenism through Art, Education, Theatre, Music and Festivities:

The Celebration of Art:

As part of our Odyssey celebrations, we once again intend to feature the talented works of local artists as part of the Art Exhibition, which is held throughout the duration of the festival at its hub in Franklin Street, Adelaide.

We are seeking expressions of interest from young and new artists with a love for Hellenic culture to display their works based on the theme ‘Education Through Greek Arts’. The art work selected by an eminent art judge, will be awarded “The Odyssey Art Prize” of $1000 First Prize, $600 Second Prize and $400 Third Prize.  

We are seeking creativity in all forms, be it painting, drawing, print making, ceramics, sculpture or any creative art form, with the theme of ‘Education Through Greek Arts’  being interpreted any way the artist wishes, be it relating it to modern day or historical. The winning piece will become a permanent fixture in the Greek Orthodox Community gallery and non-winning pieces will be available for purchase.

We request that your artwork be ready to hang by Friday 27 September 2019, with the winner announced at the launch on Friday 4th October 2019 at Olympic Hall.
