Nick Bourdaniotis, the Director of Photography for Greek City Times, also donated three of his very own exhibition prints to the Hellenic Club of Canberra.

They were auctioned off and over $15,000 was raised for the local Greek School, run by the local Greek Orthodox community and church of Canberra, which now boasts over 200 enrolled students in its children and online adult education programs.

Nick’s love and pride for his heritage is so profound that he has the ability to ignite the Hellenic flame in every person that witnesses his exhibition.

Nick and his team would like to thank the Hellenic Club of Canberra for their support of the event and the Greek Orthodox Community and Church of Canberra for their hospitality and collaboration in making this a successful opening for this National exhibition.
