MIRKA Viewing and Guided Walk with Alliance Française

9 May 2021
Sunday 10am–1.30pm
Jewish Museum of Australia

In partnership with the Alliance Française Melbourne, enjoy a private viewing of this wonderful exhibition celebrating the rich and fascinating life of the late Mirka Mora (1928-2018).

Following the viewing, join renowned photographer and former City of Port Phillip Deputy Mayor Serge Thomann for a guided walk through St Kilda, conducted in French. The tour covers sites of significance from Mirka Mora’s life, including the Tolarno Hotel, St Kilda Pier, the Dog’s Bar and more.

Serge’s personal connection to Mirka stretches back to 1995, when he met Mirka as she was buying French newspapers at the former news agency in Acland Street – and his life changed forever. “Mirka became my spiritual mother,” says Serge, and their friendship lasted until her passing.

With his personal connection to St Kilda and first-hand knowledge of Mirka’s life, Serge Thomann brings lively insight into this special guided walk.

There will be an opportunity to stop during the walk to purchase lunch.
