The Educational and Cultural Section of the high Commission believes that an exchange of cultures between the U.K. and Cyprus is imperative, and that such an exchange facilitates a constructive intercultural dialogue. There are many elements of Cyprus culture and heritage that many Britons are not aware of. Raising awareness of Cyprus’ rich history as a cultural crossroad between three continents is very important. The Educational and Cultural Section organizes and facilitates cultural shows, art and handicraft exhibitions, Cypriot musical and theater performances and films screenings. It gives regular advice and works closely with British academic and cultural agencies to better expose the British public to Cypriot culture and traditions. The Section connects relevant individuals and entities and creates opportunities for mutually beneficial relationships that will support these vital aspects of Cypriot society.
