Events (Concerts, Exhibitions)
Eleni Evangel MLA has officially opened the photographic exhibition "Medieval Architectural Beauties of Serbia" at the Perth Town Hall. The exhibition is organized as part of the 2013 Metropolitanate Day celebration.
The exhibition is inspired by the medieval heritage of Serbia and includes images of churches, monasteries, fortresses, buildings and landscapes of outstanding beauty. These places are the home of many local and international events and are often the setting of fascinating tales, standing as living reminders of the historical significance of the region. The selected photographs take us on a journey of some of the most significant monuments and regions in Serbia, depicting the unique environment in which these churches, monasteries and fortresses were built. Some of them have been thriving ever since; others stand as stark reminders of the significant moments in history. The exhibition aims to show the value and beauty of religion, tradition and nature and bring them closer to the public.
In preparation for the Biennial Assembly of the Metropolitanate of Australia and New Zealand of the Serbian Orthodox Church, which will be held in Perth from 6-7 September 2013, the celebration of Metropolitanate Day on Saturday, 7 September 2013, and the Bishop's Patronal Name Day Celebration on Sunday, 8 September 2013, a special photographic exhibition of Serbian Medieval Architecture, featuring many of our historical churches and monasteries in Kosovo and Metohija, will be held in Perth Town Hall from 1-7 September 2013.
