The Greek Australian Cultural League (GACL) is celebrating its 50-year anniversary on Saturday, 17 August, 2019.

For the past half century, the non-profit organisation has been working towards the advancement, support and dissemination of the creative endeavours of Greek-Australian writers and artists whose work primarily reflects the confluence of the Greek and Australian cultures and contributes to the enrichment of Literature, the Visual Arts and the Performing Arts.

In pursuing these aims the League initiates, organises and participates in cultural, artistic, social and intellectual activities and debates.
