Members of the Hellenic Institute of Cultural Diplomacy share a special passion for Greek culture. That unique bond was, for many, forged as children falling in love with mythology. For others, it was an appreciation for the aesthetic beauty of classical art and architecture; or perhaps a fascination that the roots and grammar of so many diverse areas of knowledge- right down to democracy itself- found their origins in the inquisitive minds of the Greeks. To Philhellenes everywhere, whatever has drawn you to the Greeks, HICD is your Greek Cultural connection. Please consider becoming a member and discover opportunities for a deeper and more rewarding cultural dive.
