The Hellenic Institute of Cultural Diplomacy, (H.I.C.D.) is a scientific non-governmental organisation, founded in Athens in March 25, 2017, and is the only proponent of Cultural Diplomacy in Greece.
Working closely with private and public governmental bodies, academic and scientific organisations both at home and around the world, the Institute has branches in different Greek cities and abroad. Each branch is responsible for the development and delivery of a range of cultural activities, under the guidance of the Athens headquarters.
By engaging in research and developing the different fields of Cultural Diplomacy, the H.I.C.D aims to build bridges of trust and cooperation and foster dialogue between different cultures. This contributes to strengthen regional and multilateral diplomatic bonds, improves relations between nations and communicates universal values and principles that only culture can convey.
