The Hellenic Foundation for Culture (HFC) was founded in 1992. It was established to disseminate and promote the Greek language, Greek culture and Greek books throughout the world.
The HFC plays a key role in raising the profile of Greek culture in Greece and worldwide through its primary activities: organising cultural events, teaching the Greek language, and promoting Greek publishing through the Biblionet database and the GreekLit portal.
As of today, the HFC has created a network of branches outside Greece, based in Alexandria, Belgrade, Berlin, Bucharest, Moscow, Odessa and Trieste.
The HFC is a member of two important European cultural networks: the European Union of National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) and the Anna Lindh Foundation.
Its international collaborations include university departments for Hellenic Studies, Greek language schools, embassies, cultural centres, museums and libraries around the world.
