The Chau Chak Wing Museum at the University of Sydney in association with the Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens presents a celebration of Greek culture, games and conversation.
Throughout ‘Kafenio 1’, visitors will have the opportunity to explore the social and cultural context of board games throughout history, handle and view special artefacts, photographs and artworks from Greece and around the globe, and of course, play some games.
This free celebration of games and Greek culture is supported by The Nicholas Anthony Aroney Estate Greek Cultural Program.
