From Living Behind a Milkbar to UNESCO
FREE PUBLIC LECTURE
Room 110 (Building 220) 780 Elizabeth StreetMap
Peter Mousaferiadis, Founder and CEO of Cultural Infusion, will share the story of his business, a local cultural company that has developed global connections and achieved international recognition. Mousaferiadis will discuss his origins from playing clarinet in his parents' milkbar in the western suburbs of Melbourne to becoming an international traveller, cultural entrepreneur and collaborator with leading international cultural organisations such as UNESCO.
The presentation will explore his personal and institutional pathway to success focusing on key milestones, exciting travels and a range of cross-cultural projects. Mousaferiadis has worked tirelessly to develop a new school of thought around cultural entrepreneurship, culture and the humanity’s greatest asset, such as cultural diversity.
This is the first lecture in a three-part series: Global Dimension of Cultural Entrepreneurship: International Inspirations Making Local Impact, curated by Dr Natalia Grincheva. The series features three successful cultural start-ups that gained their main ideas and inspirations from international travels and cross-cultural engagements. The series exposes how local communities in different countries become increasingly hyperconnected through global circulations of cultural and economic capital via digital and material flows.
