The Onassis Foundation USA is committed to the promotion of Hellenic culture. By cooperating with cultural and educational institutions in Greece and throughout the Americas, it promotes cultural relations.
The Onassis Cultural Center NY explores Hellenic culture from antiquity to today, through a diverse program of exhibitions, events, and online engagement for audiences of all ages and interests. All programs and exhibitions—from scholarly to those designed for families, novices, and experts—are presented free of charge to make the experience accessible to all.
The 2016 Onassis Festival of Arts and Ideas, Antigone Now, will celebrate the work of modern-day Antigones and explore the many ways in which an individual can take a stand to affect positive change in the world, by promoting open dialogue and unity.
