HICD UK Launch: Greece, Pleased to Meet you

The establishment of the Hellenic Institute of Cultural Diplomacy was dictated by the need to rethink Greece’s position in the world, not in terms of reproduction but of creation and to build bridges of cultural dialogue. Join us for the UK launch of the Hellenic Institute of Cultural Diplomacy to learn more about cultural diplomacy and the power of ‘soft power’ – especially when leveraged by a cultural heavyweight like Greece.

Featuring talks, music and more, the launch is your chance to sample how the Institute aims to shift perceptions of Greece, abroad. How? By fostering a move away from the reproduction of our heritage, towards the creation of modern Greek culture.
