Founded in 1957, the Hellenic American Union is a public-service institution with an international focus and strong community commitment, dedicated to providing opportunities for a diverse range of audiences to encounter and benefit from innovative educational programs and cultural events. These programs are developed independently by the institution or in partnership with European and American educational and cultural organizations, and aim to directly address emergent social or economic needs.
Since its founding, the Hellenic American Union has been one of the most prominent institutions on the Athens cultural scene and a forum where the public can encounter new trends in art, science, and technology from Europe and the United States. Through a program of exhibitions, performances, concerts, lectures, and seminars, we promote the exchange of ideas on art, science, and society.
