The Cultural Fund


Embrace Greek art and culture through music, theatre, dance, film and visual arts. Be part of the Centre’s Future.

Philanthropic support has been at the heart of the Hellenic Centre since its inception and has played a vital role in our past.

Our aim is to raise £350,000 to support a new cultural offering at the Hellenic Centre.  

Building on the Hellenic Centre’s history and values, we are moving into a new, exciting phase where we explore the significance, impact and connections our culture has with the contemporary world. 

Under the helm of Dr Nayia Yiakoumaki, who has become the Director in Autumn 2022, the Centre is looking to reach beyond its traditional audience. Dr Yiakoumaki brings a wealth of experience in the cultural and the academic sector. She has worked for more than 30 years in the arts, being the Co-director of Athens Biennale and Director of International Networks to Head of Curatorial Studies and Archives at Whitechapel Gallery, where she also managed the NEON Curatorial Exchange and Award founded by NEON, Athens

She says: I am honoured to be the Director of The Hellenic Centre as we grow and become a serious contributor to London’s cultural scene and a destination for diverse communities. 

The Centre will discover and share contemporary work that derives from, refers to and creates dialogue with Greek culture. To establish this new phase, we have created The Cultural Fund, which will support our vision to:
