Fitzroy Football Club: Great football, Great community, Great culture.

ACU Game Day Lunch featuring Professor Joy Damousi

< Back to Events

Saturday 28 May 2022 11:45am ~ Saturday 28 May 2022 1:45pm

Community Room, Brunswick Street Oval, Brunswick Street, Fitzroy North 3068.

What was Fitzroy, the suburb, like in the 1960s? What was it like growing up there as an immigrant? And what role did football play in rebellion and “Australianness”?

Professor Joy Damousi, head of ACU’s Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences, will share her tales and photos of growing up Greek in 1960s Fitzroy.

She’ll explore local history, who lived in the suburb we love then and now, and how generations of immigrant families didn’t always see eye to eye on football codes.

This lunch will put a spotlight on our sponsors ACU, and take place before our Senior Fitzroy-ACU Women take on Old Geelong at Brunswick St Oval.
