Our vision

The establishment of the Hellenic Institute of Cultural Diplomacy was decided on the grounds of the need to revive the Greek Cultural identity and to redefine ourselves in the world, not just for the purposes of reproduction, but creation.

The main aim of the Institute is to highlight the values ​​of culture, to promote cooperation and to build mutual trust with the ultimate goal of creating emotional proximity with foreign people – relations that outlive changes in government.

The HICD wants to play a significant role in the spiritual and academic life of our country, contributing to the upgrade of Greece’s image abroad, supporting new and talented artists, and creating a cultural background and mentality capable of motivating Greek citizens to feel a duty to themselves and the society in which we live.
