The Hellenic Museum is a not-for-profit organisation run by a team of passionate professionals and volunteers.
CEO & Head of Curation
Sarah Craig’s Scottish-Australian heritage hasn’t stopped her from becoming a true philhellene. Her passion for Hellenic culture has existed since her mother read her the Greek myths as bedtime stories as a child.
Sarah began her tertiary education with a Bachelor of Arts (Archaeology) (Honours) and Bachelor of Arts (Sociology) from Monash University. She then completed a Masters in Art Curatorship at the University of Melbourne to focus her career within the arts and museum sector.
She is an established member of the Hellenic Museum team; having joined the Museum in 2014. She was appointed Head Curator in 2015 and Manager of Curation and Operations in 2018, before finally being appointed CEO & Head of Curation in December 2020.
Sarah’s passion for Hellenism stems from a profound interest in the intellectual and philosophical curiosity of the ancient Greeks. This legacy continues to shape the way we look at power, sexuality, gender dynamics, artistry and leadership.
Sarah’s zest for discovery and fundamental belief in the transformative power of object and experiential learning has led her to collaborate with some of the world’s leading academics, artists and creators. She firmly believes that the understanding of history is the key to unlocking the future, and by exploring ways in which old and new Hellenism collide, we will be able to prepare ourselves for a better tomorrow.
