Cultural Relations

The Canadian Embassy has limited capacity to support cultural activities corresponding to priorities of the Canadian government in the region. Preference is given to projects involving local partner organizations. The modest Post Initiative Fund helps raise the profile of Canada and further Canadian interests in Greece and Cyprus by promoting cultural activities and events in partnership with artists, festivals and other cultural organizations, producers, publishers and the media. It does not provide travel costs to and from Canada.

International Translation Grants

Publishers can find more information about qualifying for financial assistance in translating books by Canadian authors into the Greek language at the Canada Council for the Arts.

Organizations and individuals who believe a project may be eligible for support should forward their proposal to Zoe Delibasis, Political & Public Affairs Officer zoe.delibasis@international.gc.ca
